Change is hard – that much we know. And many of our loyal readers have told is just that in so many words … or fewer (“You suck!” and “whoever designed this should be fired!” are my personal favourites). We didn’t just tweak the design of canada.com, we threw it out and started over. Yes, it’s brighter, louder, and has far more pictures. That seems to generate hate mail. But that’s OK. The feedback has been incredibly valuable – both the good (thanks mom) and the bad.
There are some who believe that the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians stands contrary to the public water agencies in its concerns over management of our regional water resources. The tribe does not. Many of the issues raised by the tribe are shared by the Mission Springs Water District (MSWD) and its constituents.
Taylor Swift has gone full vill. With the November 10 release of her new album, Reputation, America’s former sweetheart has finally completed her full transformation into pop culture’s premiere villain. Perhaps sensing the tide was turning on our willingness to buy into her previously cultivated good girl image, Swift retreated after the blockbuster success of 2014’s 1989 and returned this summer shilling a completely new brand. In wrestling, they call it the heel turn.
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".
