I’ve always been an addicted to people who live their lives to the fullest. Most people’s memories fade over time. Mine become more crystal clear every day because forgetting them would be unforgivable. I’ve sailed to Antarctica, rappelled into an active volcano, shanked drives on the most exclus...
AUSTRALIAN surfwear group Billabong is on the cusp of agreeing to a buyout at the hands of the US company that owns rival Quiksilver, according industry chatter. Billabong earlier this month revealed it had received a $200 million all-cash buyout offer from Boardriders — the Californian company that owns Quiksilver .

On July 4th, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve a private jet lands at Aspen, Colorado’s Sardy Field on average every seven minutes like Bentleys into a valet line. A stream of tinted Escalades squeezes through a private gate away from the main terminal, ferrying the world’s celebrity-industrial elite into of the most exclusive ski town in North America.
It’s a mid-July Friday afternoon on the hottest day of the year, and the opening day of the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky’s downtown Waterfront Park. A few thousand people are already gathered on the Great Lawn sweeping up from the Ohio River. Most are “self-shading” by holding their blankets over their heads. Over the last few years Forecastle has become one of the country’s most popular outdoor summer music festivals.
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".
