I first heard Keikilani and Leokani Lindsey, father and son singer-songwriters, at Packer’s Wharf during the visit of Hokule’a — a replica of an ancient Polynesian vessel that docked here in June of last year on her round the world voyage. I was deeply moved by their warmth and authentic joy in sharing their songs, and their ability to both write new songs and present traditional Hawaiian music with the best of the best.
Hokule’a, the famous replica of an ancient Polynesian voyaging canoe, visited Martha’s Vineyard in June of last year. Since then, she has sailed more than 40,000 nautical around the world and is now in Tahiti about to journey home to Honolulu where she will arrive on June 17 to a tumultuous welcome. She is spreading the message of malama honua (taking care of Island Earth) by promoting sustainability and environmental consciousness.
In Hawaii they call it Ho'oponopono, in New Zealand it's Te Whanau Awhina. And the Wampanoag people have a similar traditional process - a way of finding a balance or resolution between the victim of a crime and the perpetrator. Another widely used term for it today is restorative justice, or more simply, the circle.
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".
