Landmarks, I believe, can be divided into two categories. The first are those landmarks built, with intent, to become landmarks. The Hollywood sign, the Eiffel Tower, even, in more modest terms, our own James Brown statue. Those were built with purpose and the understanding that they would become both symbols and significant wayfinding points for the communities that claim them. The Chrysler Building is a landmark. Nobody gives directions based on the bagel place across the street.
The new year has already gotten off to a perfect start for Scott Parel. “It couldn’t be much better, I wouldn’t think, to win the first one of the year,” said the Champions Tour golfer from Augusta. Parel won the Diamond Resorts Invitational tournament in Orlando on Sunday, a celebrity pro-am event that serves as an unofficial kickoff to the upcoming Champions Tour season. In a field of 27 tour pros that included seven major champions, Parel beat Scott Dunlap in a playoff.
February’s National Signing Day has attained holiday status and an all-capital-letter designation in these parts. Last month’s Early Signing Day may have supplanted it as an instant cult classic. Why don’t fans and programs afford the same obsessive observance to what’s become the most important date on the collegiate football calendar – NFL Draft declaration day. Perhaps a more catchy title like Crossroads Monday would get more traction.
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".
