Excuse Dalia Vidor if appears to be auditioning for a new version of the TV show, “Hoarders.”Postcards and magnets, pens and maps. Ballcaps and schedules. All crowding around a desk in what’s left of the space dedicated to VisitVallejo’s information booth at the ferry building. She’s no hoarder.
It’s Michael Kaeshammer’s debut performing in Napa and a problem already confronts him. As a self-admitted “foodie,” he might not want to leave. In fact, it’s a surprise he hasn’t already left a forwarding address back home in Canada. Perhaps not surprising, the 2017 Western Canadian Music Association’s Jazz Artist of the Year is pondering a television program combining his artistic talents and culinary skills. “It’s not because I think it would be successful,” Kaeshammer mused.
In her 78 years, Mary Ellsworth has seen her share of fashion trends. Some come, some go. Some come and go and come back again. Never did the Vallejo native, however, think she could parlay whatever interest she had in attire from the past into benefitting the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum — until she witnessed a presentation by The Goodwill Bags in Suisun a few years ago.
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".
