Bill Anderson is in his sixth decade as one of country music's most highly regarded songwriters. Ray Price gave "Whisperin' Bill" his big break when he recorded "City Lights," a song Anderson wrote when he was just 19 years old, in 1958, and took it to No. 1 on the country charts; however, that song wasn't the first of his compositions that Anderson heard on the radio. Below, Anderson recalls to The Boot what it was like to hear one of his songs on the radio for the first time.
Dick Van Dyke is having the time of his life. At 87, his new lease on life began last year when he married the "new" love of his life, make-up artist Arlene Silver, who is 46 years his junior. If you added up all his titles -- actor, producer, singer, dancer, comedian and writer -- you'd be hard pressed to single out one that he hasn't done with the greatest of ease.
This week, Scott Pruitt and his polluter cronies are aggressively perpetrating the lie they call “sue and settle” as a way of refusing to enforce our nation’s critical environmental laws. On Monday, Pruitt announced that the Environmental Protection Agency would avoid settling lawsuits with public interest groups and instead would lean toward fighting cases in court. But don’t be fooled: This is a phony remedy in search of a problem to solve.
PLEASE LET THIS MARCH INCLUDE CHILD ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF THEIR PARENTS. “Over the past 10 years, more than 20,000 American children are believed to have been killed in their own homes by family members." http://bit.ly/2G6X9Pohttps://t.co/MOy7F3G6na
Just in case you're wondering. I do not care who is consensually sleeping with whom. That includes my neighbors, my first cousins, my president, my ex-presidents, my Hollywood friends, all politicians, my mail carriers, the Kardashians, all professional athletes, and Mr. Clean.
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".
