What It Is: Darius Rucker’s new Backstage Southern WhiskeyWho Tried It: Rennie Dyball, Senior News EditorWhy We Tried It: Um … why wouldn’t we? When Darius Rucker was just starting out as a solo country artist, I was invited to attend a very small show he was putting on in N.Y.C. Maybe 200 fans, tops. If that wasn’t special enough, my husband John and I went backstage to meet “D” and join the ceremonial group whiskey shot with him and his band to kick off the show.
Horse racing fans won’t be witnessing history on Saturday after all. I’ll Have Another, the winner of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, was pulled from the Belmont Stakes. He would have been the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years if he won Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, and he was the favorite to win it. On Friday, the horse’s trainer, Dan O’Neill, revealed on The Dan Patrick radio show that I’ll Have Another “is officially out of the Belmont” – and may never race again.
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is the buzz of the NFL these days. The former University of Florida star has helped lead his NFL team to an 8-5 record with one incredible comeback after another, including a 13-10 overtime win Sunday over the Chicago Bears. Well known for his faith and charity work, Tebow’s personal life is as carefully guarded as it is speculated about – one Web site even features a “Do You Think Tim Tebow Has a Girlfriend?” poll.
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".
