In a span of a year, Josh Fleming went from rehabbing his elbow to pitching professional baseball with the Tampa Bay organization. On his way to becoming the first player in Webster University history to be drafted by a major league team, Fleming set the school record for ERA and lowest opponent’s batting average. The biggest change for Fleming was adjusting to the level of competition from Division III baseball to the Rookie League.
- Up until major Hurricane Harvey became possibly the costliest natural disaster in American history, the 2017 hurricane season in the Atlantic had been relatively quiet. We had only had 7 named storms, only two of which became a hurricane and neither of which impacted the United States. Harvey broke a more than decade long streak of major hurricanes making landfall in the United States, becoming the first to do so since Wilma hit southern Florida in southern Florida in 2005.
- When D.C. hit 98° a week ago, it would have been nice to say that was as bad as it would get this summer. That would only be wishful thinking however – as temperatures are expected to soar to near 100° by the time the weekend arrives. Heat is something we deal with in DC seemingly once every summer. The coming heat is by no means unprecedented, but it may be the hottest stretch of days since 2012.
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".
