I can’t believe it was only 12 months ago when you were born and I held you for the first time. Everyone in the hospital room barked instructions at me: Hold her head! Watch her neck! Don’t drop her! Even though you were my third granddaughter and I felt like a pro in handling babies, I got so nervous I sat down in a rocking chair so I wouldn’t fall down with you.
Without racing legend Dan Gurney, there would be no Long Beach Grand Prix today, the founder of the race said. Gurney, the first driver with victories in Formula One, IndyCar, Sports Cars and NASCAR Cup series, died Sunday at the age of 86. He began racing in 1955 and retired from driving in 1970 with 51 victories. In 1973, Long Beach Grand Prix founder Chris Pook was a young travel agent with what many called “a crazy, wild idea” to run Formula One racing cars on the streets of Long Beach.
Gabriella Garcia immigrated to the United States 35 years ago with her 5-year-old son, Robert, to escape the danger of a domestic terrorist group called the Shining Path in her native Lima, Peru. She and her son could not speak English when they settled 4,161 miles away in the San Gabriel Valley, where she cleaned houses to earn a living.
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".
