It was summertime in Michigan which feels like a Mississippi Autumn. My mother had dropped my best friend and me off at Woodland Mall. We were 13, naïve, inquisitive and silly. My mother had given me her Hudson’s credit card – now known as Macy’s. It was burning a hole in my pocket. Loaded with freedom, we made our way through the mall; laughing and smiling. Who knows what we were chattering about back then — stuff that would be dwarfed by our discussions today.
Live and learn from fools andYou know it's true, ohAll these things you do come back to you — AerosmithAnother white-on-white-crime has taken place in America, but media outlets are refusing to state the same. What about domestic terrorist or act of terrorism? Those words will rarely, if ever, be the narrative to describe a white male stockpiling military-style weapons and killing nearly 60 people and injuring hundreds.
Deborah Elaine Bynum, wife of Jackson State President William B. Bynum Jr., is seated at a round conference table in her husband’s office contemplating if there was anything she would change about her life. “No,” she says after only a few seconds. “Even the mistakes that you’ve made should be teachable moments, so you shouldn’t have any regrets. My life experiences have prepared me for where I am right now.
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".
