To all you children who received a puppy for Christmas: Congratulations. It’s the best ‘wow” (or “bow wow”) present ever. To all you good and warm-hearted parents who bought the bundle for your kids; your heart was in the right place. That being said, you are of course nuts and will be up at all hours with a puppy that has to pee seventeen times between midnight and sunrise.
We raised the mainsail after we chugged out of the marina at Tydings Park in lovely Havre de Grace, Maryland. This is a group effort for the tourists aboard the skipjack Martha Lewis, and on this day more for show than go. The sail is hoisted with the guests heaving to hand-over-hand on the line as the big sheet uncurls and climbs to the top of the spar that pokes the dazzling blue sky on a spectacular last-gasp of a summer afternoon. The captain plays a recorded sailing ditty.
That’s basically what some huffy Chamber of Commerce types in Whiting, Indiana told a group of volunteers in Edwardsville, Pa.A battle raging over what are pretty much Polish dumplings? Pierogi petulance? What fresh hell is this? Here’s the deal. You decide if supposedly civilized human beings have gone nuts; although there seems to be a lot of that going around. Whiting, Indiana is a small town on the shores of Lake Michigan outside Chicago.
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".
