While some consider it vandalism, graffiti is, in its purest form, an artistic expression if ideas and emotions. With its annual event series Richmond Mural Project, Virginia’s capital city is on the forefront of the national graffiti scene, with large murals gracing the walls of dozens of homes and businesses around Carytown. Many of them are by Philadelphia native Hamilton Glass, who says he has created more than 80 murals in Richmond alone since moving there in 2007.
How musician Giustino Riccio became one of Richmond’s best pizza makers. As the percussionist for Richmond’s salsa sensation Bio Ritmo, New Jersey native Giustino Riccio knows how to pound the drums. But lately, he has spent more time pounding dough at Galley Go-To, where he opened Giustino’s Pizza last fall. Riccio, 44, takes his craft as a pizza maker as serious as his musicianship - and the proof is in the pudding, err, pie.
A Tesla store is no typical car dealership. Inside the sleek and stylish space, the marque’s Model X and Model S luxury sedans are positioned to command attention—the red carpet stars of a sexy new electric automotive future. If these cars were people, they’d be the beau monde, you know, the cool kids. You can’t help but want to hang out with them. In August, the automaker opened its second store in Virginia on West Broad Street in Glen Allen.
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".
