Even the doughnuts are getting in on this phenomenon. The solar eclipse is coming, and Krispy Kreme has responded by offering today to “eclipse” its iconic glazed doughnuts with chocolate just for the occasion. In truth, it’s surprising that more companies haven’t tried to find profit and visibility in the moon’s passage in front of the sun. How is this not “the Hardee’s/Carl Jr.’s Solar Eclipse?” How is Eveready not the official battery of the 2017 solar eclipse?
Gov. Terry McAuliffe has filed a request with the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management requesting that Virginia be exempted from a newly revised program to open up the East Coast to offshore drilling. In a letter dated Aug. 11, which was made public on Thursday, McAuliffe cited both economic and environmental concerns in asking BOEM national program manager Kelly Hammerle to exclude Virginia’s coastal areas from the 2019-2024 National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing program.
Blaine Pardoe believes there are a lot of misperceptions about the Colonial Parkway Murders — a string of four unsolved double homicides that occurred between 1986 and 1989 and that may or may not have been the work of a serial killer. This was regularly reinforced to him while he was doing the research for the new book he co-authored with his daughter Victoria Hester, "A Special Kind of Evil," which examines the killings and profiles the eight victims.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
