TAMPA — John Kaack was known to curse in public and enjoy a beer. At sporting events, when calls didn’t go his team’s way, his was among the loudest voices in the crowd, often with harsh words for the referee. Kaack was also a Jesuit priest who, in part through his rebellious streak, forged lifelong relationships with Jesuit High School students. "He loved football and he would curse like a sailor," Victor DiMaio, Jesuit class of 1972, said with a laugh.
TAMPA — This year, as Jose Gaspar invades Tampa, he will have an unlikely ally — Lord Stanley of Preston. When the pirate ship Jose Gasparilla docks at the Tampa Convention Center on January 27 to kick off the Gasparilla Parade of Pirates, the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup championship trophy will be on board. It’s all part of that weekend’s merging of the NHL All-Star Game and its festivities and Tampa’s signature annual event.
TAMPA — Rafael Pizano has emerged as the young leader among Cuba dissidents in Tampa. Without him, there may not have been a future for the campaign. For years, local Cuban hardliners have been aging away. It’s a movement started by those who fled the island following Fidel Castro’s rise and by those who initially stayed, fought, were imprisoned, and later left.
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".
