Many readers who enjoyed the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder will vividly recall the account in “On the Banks of Plum Creek” where she described the natural disaster that was created by a massive invasion of grasshoppers in Minnesota in 1874 and 1875. It went like this:“The cloud was hailing grasshoppers. The cloud was grasshoppers. Their bodies hid the sun and made darkness. Their thin, large wings gleamed and glittered.
Martha Jane Canary was born near Princeton, the daughter of Robert Wilson and Charlotte Burge Canary. Robert was a native of Ohio, and Charlotte was a native of Illinois. It's not known for sure if her middle name was Jane, although it is a middle name often combined with Martha.But it could be she went by Jane and that added the moniker she would later be known as.Jane claimed that she was born May 1, 1852.
The Black Hills Daily Times of Jan. 22, 1878, noted that, “Calamity Jane had her photograph taken today for the first time in her life.” If that was true, it would certainly not be the last time.In early 1882, Street & Smith of The New York Weekly — “Greatest Story and Sketch Paper in the World” — was running a feature titled “Calamity Jane, The Queen of the Plains. A Tale of Daring Deeds by a Brave Woman’s Hands.”By October of 1883, Calamity Jane’s fame had grown remarkably.
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".
