The look of Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square hasn’t changed much for decades, with its mishmash of squat storefronts and low-rise brick buildings from an earlier time. That’s about to change. Construction is beginning on a 19-story apartment tower at the corner of Mass. Ave. and Main Street that will be among the tallest buildings in Cambridge, and is the latest — and largest — in a wave of projects transforming the eclectic neighborhood.
At first glance, there’s nothing high-tech about a stainless steel door hinge. Unless it’s made by Desktop Metal. But the company isn’t a Rust Belt relic — a metal-casting company left over from the glory days of America’s Iron Age. It’s a modern startup operating out of an office park in Burlington. The hinges at Desktop Metal aren’t cast in molds or stamped in presses, like ordinary metal parts.
But so was Rob Jones’s steady pace and outlook on life: Survive. Recover. Live. The Marine propelled around Castle Island in South Boston on two prosthetic running blades, focused on his latest mission — to run 31 marathons in 31 days in 31 cities. The day was windy; clouds kept the sun at bay. Strangers and friends surrounded Sullivan’s, waiting for Jones to complete each loop before taking a moment to rest. Others joined him on the 26.2-mile run. “Here he comes,” one woman said.
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".
