During our excursions in the woods on Wiley Hill, Scout Master Art Johnson taught us that nature provided numerous direction finders. One indicator was the moss covering the north side of trees and rocks. “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” reports that herds of grazing and resting deer and cattle tend to align themselves with Earth’s magnetic fields.
Six years ago, Hurricanes Igor and Julia reached Category 4 status, marking the first time since September 16, 1926 that two Category 4 hurricanes existed in the Atlantic at the same time for only 6 hours. September 16, 1999, was a day of unprecedented devastation for North Carolina. Hurricane Floyd unloaded 20 inches of rain, causing flooding never before experienced in the Carolina’s. Sewage flowing down Cape Fear River stretched 50 miles past Wilmington and 20 miles into the Atlantic.
There's been lots of excitement with Mike VII as he enjoyed bhis first appearance inside and outside Tiger Stadium. Bulldogs and cowbells will be enjoyed in Starkville this weekend. Mascots for teams have been tributes to weather events in their respective regions. The University of Miami Hurricanes has a mascot called Sebastian the Ibis because the ibis is the first animal to come-out-of-hiding after a hurricane.
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".
