Putting years of combat and war behind them can be difficult for some veterans, but John Ferenz Sr., who turned 100 on Jan. 11, is different, in part because of his undying passion for music. It all began when he was 10 years old in New York City in the 1930s. A son of Czechoslovakian immigrants, Ferenz and his family lived in a Slovak neighborhood on the upper east side in Manhattan, where all the kids on his block went to the same Catholic school.
Much of the coast between Santa Barbara and Ventura remained crippled one week after a winter storm triggered major flooding and debris flows that destroyed more than 100 homes and damaged twice that number. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said on Jan. 14 that at least 20 people had died due to the storm. Two days before, Santa Barbara Cottage Health Hospital announced that of the 28 injured, 11 patients remained in care and only one was in critical condition.
A Delta IV rocket laden with a classified satellite from the National Reconnaissance Office successfully blasted into earth’s orbit on Jan. 12. The launch occurred just after 2 p.m. that day and was carried out by the U.S. Air Force and the United Launch Alliance (ULA)—a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and The Boeing Company—at Space Launch Complex 6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
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".
