While most of us would like to fast-forward through romantic breakups, zooming straight past the tight chest, stomach knots, and weak bones, poet Yesika Salgado is commemorating the anguish. In her first book, Corazón — Spanish for "heart" or "darling" — the Salvadoran-American writer celebrates heartbreak. The book of poetry, published by Not A Cult on Oct. 12, is about the unceasing hunger for love.
Ariana Brown’s poetry – powerful, but still spoken with a modest tremble – will move you. With words like, “If you are alive, you are descended from a people who refused to die. Nothing is more sacred than you” (Curanderismo) and “Guadalupe, the patroness of Mexican people, la morena, dark like we are, sacred like our names have always been” (Voler, Voler), the 24-year-old Black mexicana uses language to heal and empower women of color.
When Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico on September 20, it ensnared the country, forcing people everywhere, even if just temporarily, to focus on the oldest paradise colony in the Caribbean. As the storm’s 155-mph winds dropped palm trees and collapsed homes, it gave sight to an arresting archipelago that had been battered by floods and mudslides as well as U.S. imperialism and exploitation.
"Marrying the island and her diaspora is a poetic way to bring my family and community together ... & demand a #JustRecovery and a sustainable future for a free Puerto Rico where we can all thrive together.” https://t.co/gA0baoq963 via @fiercebymitu
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".
