With much pomp and circumstance, the Austin Peay State University graduating class of Summer 2017 received their diplomas Friday. The honored speaker at the ceremony was Brad Loos, who works as the major gifts officer with the University of Missouri Tiger Scholarship Fund. Loos is the son of APSU’s famed former head basketball coach Dave Loos, who retired in March. He spoke on how students have shown that perseverance is one of the most important keys to personal and professional success.
ERIN, Tenn. — As the 2018 Tennessee gubernatorial race begins to heat up, allies to the volunteer state’s Democratic Party are coming from unexpected places, like rural Houston County. Houston County, which has voted blue at the national level in every presidential election except for the 2016, 2012, 1968 and 1928 elections, has seen a lack of democratic political activism after the local party fell victim to inactivity.
A small festival in a small area of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, is going for big results this year as it coincides with this summer's total solar eclipse. This will be the seventh annual Little Green Man Days festival for Kelly, which was the site of an alleged landing of aliens on Aug. 21, 1955. The story of that event sparked the idea for Steven Spielberg’s unreleased film “Night Skies,” which was later adapted into the film “E.T. the Extra Terrestrial."
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".
