“As I ascend through the air, on a one-way ticket to New York, I can’t help but reflect back on my time in Chicago and wonder: did I do Chicago wrong?”Yes, Eric Barry, you did. The author of a recent Huffington Post article titled Goodbye Chicago: What It’s Like To Live In A City You Tried To But Couldn’t Love has gotten a lot of attention over the past few weeks for his diatribe against the Windy City.
After spending two weeks driving through Portugal, I am completely in love with the country. It has beautiful cities, a fascinating history, a gorgeous coastline, great food and wine, and it’s inexpensive. Why don’t more people travel here? Portugal started building its empire in the 15th century when sailors went out to explore areas along the African Coast. Eventually, they reached the Cape of Good Hope, which led them to Brazil. They also sailed through the Indian Ocean to southern Asia.
Fixers face a raft of dangers and get little credit for helping journalists to report on the devastation of war. Erbil - Every day, dozens of stories are published from the front lines of the war in Iraq. And each day, local fixers put their lives on the line to help journalists tell these stories. Without their assistance in securing access and translations, it would be nearly impossible for foreign reporters to do their jobs.
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".
