Russian figure skater Adelina Sotnikova waves to spectators during the closing ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The entire Russian team has been banned from the next Winter Games. The International Olympic Committee's recent decision to ban the Russian team from February's Winter Games is an historic first.

Ian Thompson with a program and a souvenir piece of cake from the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The cake was a thank-you gift from Prince Charles to wedding participants. When Britain's Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle get married in May, their wedding will be as closely choreographed as a Broadway show -- and seen by a much bigger audience than a commoner's stage production. Take, for example, the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Megan Townsend: I guess my biggest question, knowing that gas and oil is a big part of our economy, and operators and mineral owners have a right to utilize those minerals, but now that we're getting closer and closer to that urban interface, how do you use your experience and knowledge to mitigate the tension that exists? Gov. John Hickenlooper: Well that's one of the thorniest issues that I've had since right when I first ran for Governor in 2010, right through until today.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
