Life’s best moments are movies we relive in the delicate darkness of our minds until we can collect memories no longer. Life’s worst moments are no less cinematic. In grieving Aurora, Colo., the years slipped away and Bob Crowell was back in 1993 — on the day there was a shooting at the Chuck E. Cheese where his 19-year-old daughter worked. Four of those five Aurora victims died.
Who is the best San Diego area politician on Twitter? A better question is who wanted to be. Read on for answers, laughs, an explanation of the mustaches above â€” and a window into each pol's personality and into San Diego politics. One of our 10 contestants didn't engage at all. Another reconsidered and deleted some tweets. Two tried to pool votes at the end of our 48-hour campaign of 140-character speeches. (Play fair, we told them.) No way to say who's best!
Avid surfer and accomplished businessman Fernando Aguerre sees huge waves on the horizon. He sees surfers competing in the Summer Olympics. The 53-year-old La Jollan has spent nearly a third of his life on the mission. Since 1994, he has been elected president of the International Surfing Association eight times — and had his Olympic hopes dashed five times. His persistence may not be paying off, but it’s not washing off either.
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".
