The daily commute can sometimes get a little tedious. Well, if we’re being totally honest, it can get extremely tedious. There is one sign in Seattle that’s turning heads during the morning and afternoon drive. The marquee changes periodically, and when it does, it incites a whole new round of laughter. The Wallingford sign is maintained by gas station owners, but it’s taken on a life of its own. Left and right, every single time, the Wallingford sign delivers one liner after one liner .
In 2005, the Oprah Winfrey Show did a feature on a 5-year-old girl named Gabby. Gabby had a rare condition that prevented her from feeling pain. Being unable to experience pain might sound convenient, in a way, but in reality it’s a terrifying, life-threatening condition. For Gabby, a regular life is full of potential dangers. Because she doesn’t feel any pain, she sometimes doesn’t notice that something is causing her physical harm.
Hurricane Harvey displaced many people in Texas, forcing them to flee or be rescued. The storm did the same to many animals, too; this woman found two alligators in her backyard after the river they lived in overflowed! It’s why the story you’re about to read and the video you’re about to watch is so amazing. You see, recently, a mysterious pigeon flew into Cheri Hentschel’s garage in Whitehall, Michigan. Her husband spotted it first.
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".
