Even though bells chime and red lights flash, six pedestrians ignore the crossing gates at the Brickell Avenue bridge one afternoon in late June. An increasingly frustrated bridge tender yells at them over her loudspeaker: OFF THE BRIDGE! GET OFF THE BRIDGE! CLEAR OFF THE BRIDGE! Despite the obvious warnings that the drawbridge is about to rise, the pedestrians saunter across while drivers continue to cue on either side of the crossing. More than three minutes tick by.
THE SHIPYARD RMK Merrill-Stevens wants Miami to resume its role as a destination for yachts of distinction. In its heyday, the shipyard gave safe harbor to the rich and famous. The shipyard serviced the superyacht KALIZMA, the 165-foot Edwardian Motor Yacht Richard Burton gave to Elizabeth Taylor and rechristened in honor of his three children, Kate, Liza and Maria.
Like the Arch of Swords at a naval wedding, eight bascule bridges along the Miami River rise in succession as the Capt. Babun heads toward Biscayne Bay. While motorists may gnash their teeth whenever the drawbridge goes up downtown, those on the river below know it is vital to their business — and helps a multitude of other local businesses from paint and parts suppliers to hotels and restaurants stay afloat.
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".
