When it comes to the Vietnam Way, Craig McNamara has a unique perspective and experience unlike any other in America – his father Robert McNamara was the Secretary of Defense during the war. At an early KVIE screening of The Vietnam War, Craig spoke with my boss, Vice President of Content Creation Michael Sanford, in front a live group of donors. I started recording on my phone and never stopped. The video is not PBS quality – it’s my smartphone.
In two months, the 36th Annual KVIE Art Auction will showcase more than 260 works of art by emerging, well-known, and world-renown Northern California artists. It’s a celebration of local art and bringing art into the home, and today, KVIE’s art curator D Neath has announced this year’s winners of juror awards and curator awards. The pieces are everything from mixed media to photography, from sculpture to paintings.
I was never a night owl growing up. I tried desperately from the age of 12 on to stay up late to watch Saturday Night Live, but inevitably, I’d fall asleep well before the opening sketch. But Sunday night’s were different. I’d wait with the greatest anticipation – sit through Masterpiece Theatre – all to see the newest (for me at least) episode of Waiting for God. British television, well, really their humor, captivated me.
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".
