The popular DIY show Salvage Dawgs is based on the real-life Blue Ridge business of Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke, Virginia. CEO Mike Whiteside and President Robert Kulp created a partnership that has succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. If you’re wondering why they chose the name Salvage Dawgs…it harks back to Mike’s beloved black Labrador, Molly. “We’ve always had female black labs, but Molly was one of the most amazing dogs I have ever lived with,” Whiteside said. “She understood full sentences.
The crew at Black Dog Salvage are gearing up for another year of saving history, one building, one job at a time. Season 8’s premiere is scheduled for this Sunday, September 17 with back-to-back new episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. EST on the DIY Network. This year promises some surprises and, as always, a lot of laughs along the way. This season you will follow the Salvage Dawg crew to the C&O Railway, an antebellum house, a former Dixie furniture factory and the Virginia Military Institute.
Everyone is familiar with the saying, “If we don’t preserve our family’s history, we will lose it.” No one takes this more seriously than R.D. Vincent, the author of The Donbridge Series, a Kindle and Amazon best-seller. Based on family stories passed down to him through his Grandma Depew, these fascinating folksy tales bring over 200 years of family history to life.
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".
