Wanda Cook doesn’t back down from a challenge. First, there’s conquering the texting obsession of today’s generation. Then there’s the generation gap she’s got to close between young ones down to 5 and an older group into their late teens. “Put the device down, look up, and you grow,” says Cook, executive director and founder of Young Artists Conservatory of Music.
Kimié Miner has some precious cargo aboard on this encore trip from her Hawaii home to the Empress Theatre in Vallejo, but it’s not like she’s going to be charged for oversized baggage — and it’s not the singer’s guitar. Miner is six months pregnant and her daughter — with name pending the birth — is being treated to future mom’s soothing vocals far more than any fan. It’s not as if the future baby is going anywhere soon.
Carol Marini would almost kill to see her idol Johnny Mathis in person. As it turns out, it was Mathis who killed Marini’s worshipped “Blue Beast,” her 1968 Ford Mustang. Actually, Mathis was only indirectly involved — Marini was returning home to Fairfield Oct. 7 when her car was struck after a Mathis concert in San Jose. Totaled by a speeding 19-year-old driver, the Beast ended its run at 850,729 miles, some 150,000 and an estimated 13 years before reaching Marini’s goal of 1 million miles.
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".
