In motorsports, Wilton family satisfies its need for speedWILTON — Chris Riley’s favorite part of a racecar competition is the start. First, he weaves the car’s tires to try to get heat into them so they don’t get sticky. Then, he steps on the gas pedal to go forward as the pace car brings all the cars around the track for two laps before the race begins. “And when they drop that green flag, it’s just...,” the 66-year-old Wilton man said, pausing to think of the right word to describe the feeling.
WILTON — When Joan McCullough’s daughter was 8 years old, she developed a motor tic involving her fingers. The Wilton mom noticed the involuntary movement was similar to that of her friend’s son, who had been diagnosed two years earlier with PANDAS — pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections.
WILTON >> Growing up in Wilton, Bill Lucey spent most of his time around Long Island Sound. He caught flounder in Rowayton, fished for blue snappers in the Saugatuck River and dug for clams in Stamford Harbor. Those experiences sparked his career in biology and conservation, which has spanned 30 years and taken him across the nation and in Central America.
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".
