A latecomer to country music, Drayton Entertainment’s Alex Mustakas learned to love the genre, embracing its legendary songs and performers. His father-in-law listened to nothing but traditional country music, so spending time with him out in the garage, for instance, meant being exposed to all that history. “This is some of the greatest music ever written.
Elmira activist Al Marshall is not wrong when he says governments and polluting businesses are capable of being wrong, lying and covering up inconvenient facts. When it comes to health and environmental concerns, there are plenty of examples to back his position.That doesn’t mean, however, that such chicanery is at work in every instance.In the matter of methane in Bolender Park, it’s clear Woolwich Township doesn’t have a full handle on the scale of the former municipal dump on the site.
Suspecting the dog that came with a new family in their neighbourhood is a pit bull-cross, some St. Jacobs residents want quick action from the township. The dog attacked a rabbit hutch on the property next door, with one of the animals having to be euthanized. Owners Todd and Melissa Metzger had contacted Woolwich officials in the spring when the new neighbours moved in, expressing concerns the dog appeared to be a pit bull-cross. Pit bulls have been ostensibly banned in the province since 2005.
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".
