And how I’m part of the problem. This weekend, I missed a bus in downtown Seattle because cops in riot gear blocked my way. I was 50 feet away from the bus to Everett, wearing two backpacks and carrying an oversized duffle bag full of mountaineering gear on my shoulder, and a member of the SWAT team told me to walk around the block to get to the bus that was about to pull away. I guess this is normal now — the riot shields, the pepper spray, the disruption to normal life.
The Legacy West development in the Legacy/Frisco area is projected to see an increase in employment of almost 30,000 by the end of 2017 when several major developments are completed. Like its southern counterpart, the Uptown submarket, the Legacy area has been on fire for the last few years, drawing in major new developments with the promise of a master-planned live-work-play environment.
Eric Krafcheck has a passion for songwriting. An actuary by day, he produces, records and mixes his own songs by night. But growing up, he didn’t think of himself as a creative person. “I’ve always been musically inclined,” said Eric, now 28. “But I never at the time considered myself a creative person because of my own stereotypes and preconceived notions as to what a creative person was.
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".
