It’s been 15 years since that Tuesday morning when two planes crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, followed by terrorist attacks in Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. The attacks killed nearly 3,000 people and injured twice that many, rewrote the rules for travel and security and changed how safe we feel.
By Don Wallace with James Charisma, Robbie Dingeman and Lorin Eleni GillHawai‘i has some of the greatest families around. Maybe it’s because we’re an island chain, and prize getting along for survival’s sake, but our ‘ohana knit us together. They form an invisible safety net, cushion us with their values. Some fight for justice, save endangered green spaces, others soothe our souls with music. So, we set out to celebrate families.
Honolulu Zoo officials said they made the difficult decision this week (Aug. 14) to euthanize the male tiger because of his deteriorating health. Berani, who was born at the Phoenix Zoo on Sept. 4, 1999, moved to the Honolulu Zoo in November 2005. He is survived by many offspring. Sumatran tigers are considered critically endangered, with fewer than 500 alive, and about 200 of those living in zoos across the globe as part of a worldwide conservation effort.
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".
