CHUCK BLAZER LOOKED out the window of his $18,000-a-month Trump Tower apartment, with its view of New York's Central Park. Most tourists on Fifth Avenue below could only dream of his kind of high-rise life. But after years of lavish excess, he was no longer fixated on the trappings of his success.
What if there was one thing in your life that meant everything to you? A thing that you ran to when you were a boy, and your dad was in jail, and you had to move to a strange place. A thing that connected you to your friends always, even when you had nothing to say because you had no words for what was inside of you. A thing you turned to when you had to grow up at 16, when you had a family at 20.
Maria Sharapova arrived at the NBA's executive headquarters in New York City last August to see what it takes to run the kind of big league business she might want to oversee one day. She'd asked the commissioner, Adam Silver, if she could watch him work, and she began her tour seated next to him at a morning staff meeting, listening to him tick down a list of items that included a cracking down on teams that taunt officials via Twitter and growing the NBA's international academies.
@deertickmusic Hey, guys. We bought tix to see you in Wilmington, NC, on 2/22. Showed up to the Port City Church really excited & guess what? You weren't there. You were in Portland, ME. Stub Hub had the wrong Port City! Now we're driving 4 hrs to see you in Richmond. Can't wait!
I'm remembering Sonny Liston today. Just as he was born in Arkansas without knowing his birthday, he died in Las Vegas with no one knowing his exact death day. Still, his death certificate guesses it was Dec. 30 and there's no point in quibbling. Sure, today 47 yrs ago. RIP champ https://t.co/UsODLxaARU
I've woken up with @MikesBasement every morning for pretty much the last decade. Sad to say, he's retiring from @TheLoftSXM today. From Bob Mould to Warren Zevon, you've read my music mind over and over again, Mike. I can't imagine starting next Monday without you. Godspeed!
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".
