Two auction winners at HBO’s “Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism” at the Theater at Madison Square Garden were able to make an impromptu stop onstage next door at MSG — where Billy Joel simultaneously performed at his regular concert. The winners took an elevator straight to the stage from the HBO show hosted by Jon Stewart, where Richard Plepler mingled with stars such as John Oliver, Chris Rock, Stephen Colbert, Edie Falco and Billy Crystal.
Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in- Chief Glenda Bailey plans to be back in high heels by the holidays. Page Six reported in September that the fashion maven fractured her foot before New York Fashion Week, sidelining her from the shows. “These sneakers are Dior, and as you know I had a little tumble, so now I am on to sneakers,” the intrepid editor told us at the opening of the Astonish Me! exhibition at Hearst Tower.
John Leguizamo says he began researching his latest one-man play “Latin History for Morons” when his son was being hassled in school. “I did not know anything about Latin culture . . . until I was an older man . . . I was shocked,” the Latino comic told us at a Brasserie 8 ¹/₂ bash for his show, which is running at Studio 54. “I wanted to give [my son] the facts and knowledge so he can defend himself. I did not want him to use his hands; I wanted him to use his words . . .
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".
