Have you seen those commercials where pickups scramble up mountains, roar across rocky landscapes, and splash through rivers? Nobody actually does that. Most truck owners never take their rigs off the highway. I once had a friend who commuted 100 miles to the office in a Dodge Ram 3500. That’s a working man’s truck, a heavy-duty rig that gets the job done in America. The guy never once used his pickup as an actual hauler.
A bucket list is all about those ambitious tasks and exciting dreams you’ve been putting off until retirement. The list often includes goals you hope to accomplish, and dreams you believe will complete your life. What would you like to do before you die? Attend Burning Man? Spend a day with an elephant? Shoot down an Amazon delivery drone? Ride a camel? Swim with sharks? Get kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel? Tackle a snowman? Play a zombie in a major movie? Hunt for buried treasure in Timbuktu?
They were called “the privileged few” but more commonly known as “Deplorables.” They believed that the world was a flat disk supported by four elephants atop a giant concrete turtle. These people had little or no grammar skills and spent their free time watching “Duck Dynasty” and “Honey Booboo.” They were evil, discriminatory, and hell bent on building border walls. They lived in doublewides and didn’t like to see transgender males in the bathroom with their young daughters.
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".
