Mark Twain is often quoted as saying, “Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” The same could be said of brick-and-mortar retailing if the opening of H&M in the Santa Fe Place mall is any indication.Through June 20, there were 5,300 store closing announcements in the U.S., according to retail think tank Fung Global Retail and Technology, triple the number in the same period last year.
When Erika Eckerstrand wants to take a break and has a friend mind her Galisteo Street store, the news is inevitably the same when Eckerstrand returns: “Someone stopped by to buy a bag, but they said they would come back when you are here.”After seven years of selling her handmade bags at arts and crafts markets in the Southwest, the Swedish native is a fixture on the Made in New Mexico scene — so much so that she recently landed the coveted New Mexico True designation for products promoted...
If prosecutors had waited a few more weeks, the 12-year-old accusation that Bill Cosby had sexually assaulted a woman would have legally expired, his first public accuser would have lost her last chance at a trial, and Cosby would not be facing a decade behind bars.
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".
