Sometimes the motorcycling world can be quite serendipitous. Such was the case of a special Yamaha YZ250FX and me. Back in April of 2015 I raced this machine, then an all-new model from Yamaha, at the Limestone 100 GNCC (“Confirming A Winner,” August 2015). I jelled really well with the bike and was able to pull off a win in my class, Sportsman B. After that GNCC, the same bike was used in the “Two-Stroke Versus Four-Stroke Enduro Race Test” (October 2015).
Statues honoring explorer Christopher Columbus have come under the threat of vandals in recent weeks. Throughout the United States, activists continue to make an effort at correcting the mistakes of past generations. From Confederate statues to street names, a movement continues to gain steam, which attempts to stop honoring American icons who have posthumously found themselves on the wrong side of history.
“Give back to the Ellensburg community,” Jimmie Smith urged his son Joel nearly 50 years ago. “Find something you are passionate about, volunteer to promote it, and give it all of your very best efforts.”Throughout his life, Jimmie Smith volunteered to help the Ellensburg Rodeo, an interest he inherited from his father Laurel Burchard Smith, and passed down to his own children and grandchildren.
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".
