If you found it hard to walk through a haunted house, just think of a Knoxville, Tennessee family who lived in one 24/7, by choice. "See that thing up in my window? That's my room," said Olivia Cunningham, one of the kids, referring to a giant spider hanging out her window. "So super fun going to bed with that glowing up every night." The Knoxville family went all out for Halloween, with about 400 decorations to bring 'spooky' to life.
The National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge is showing their support for our armed forces and the national anthem. An emotional performance by the U.S. Army Quartet received an eruption of applause Monday night. "We get it a lot," Sgt. K.C. Armstrong said. "This was like over the top." This comes after the National Quartet Convention emcee called on the entire crowd to stand, which was a direct aim at NFL players following this weekends' controversial protests.
"Next time anybody comes up, there won't be fists flying, there will be lead flying." That's the message Clarence Clark has for anyone who tries to take advantage of him. The Roane County, Tennessee grandfather said a burglary suspect, Bradley Webb, was trying to take off with his grandson's scooter. According to police reports, Clark caught him in the act outside his Philadelphia, Tenn. home last Friday. But Clark said he wouldn't let him go without a fight.
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".
