SCHENECTADY — Christina Lennon and Cathy Berger were walking down Jay Street in search of coffee Thursday when Jeff Buell stopped them and asked, “Can I borrow you for a minute?” Lennon, apparently caught off guard by Buell, his videographer, a Daily Gazette photographer and a reporter, said, “Maybe.” It was the Norwich woman’s first visit to Schenectady — she and Berger were here for a conference of 80 nonprofit housing agencies at the DoubleTree Schenectady — and her first impression was...
SARATOGA SPRINGS — The city will use eminent domain to bring the Geyser Road trail to fruition -- over objections from some residents and business owners who say the planned 2-mile bike bath is unsafe.
SARATOGA SPRINGS — Two Corvettes — one yellow speedster and one red — greeted visitors to the Saratoga Automobile Museum on Thursday as museum officials announced details of the inaugural Saratoga Auto Auction. But as it turns out, the auction isn't about cars. “It's about raising money to emphasize the consequences of distracted driving,” said Anthony Ianniello, chairman of the museum's board of directors, while standing in front of a glistening white 1964 Porsche coupe.
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".
