When Anna Deavere Smith was working on her play Notes From the Field, an explosive performance piece about the school-to-prison pipeline in which she portrays 19 real-life individuals, the Obama administration was working to combat mass incarceration and the gap in treatment between privileged and not-so-privileged youth. Smith interviewed more than 200 people in the years of research she undertook to adequately write and perform the project.
Managerial upheaval at Ibrox won’t have a negative effect on Niko Kranjcar. And it’s not because the Croatian playmaker doesn’t care about who takes the reins at Rangers. On the contrary, he has called for much-needed stability at the club. But in terms of gaffers coming and going from Auchenhowie, Kranjcar is used to it. After all, he revealed that while playing in his own country he once had SIX bosses in one season.
PSG ace Edinson Cavani believes they’ll face a different Celtic team in Paris to the one they hammered 5-0 in Glasgow. The Uruguayan striker – who netted twice in the French side’s Parkhead victory – is refusing to write off Brendan Rodgers’ men ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League clash. Unai Emery’s star-studded outfit are flying high in Group B and are one of the favourites to win the competition.
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".
