The Bay Area knows how to party. Sometimes, we even build an island for one. The Chronicle’s front page from Feb. 19, 1939, covers the opening of the Golden Gate International Exposition, a world’s fair that celebrated San Francisco’s place on the global stage and the opening of the Golden Gate and Bay bridges.
There’s a story about one of the world’s greatest hidden treasures on this front page, but you have to do a little digging to find it. The Chronicle’s cover from Feb. 17, 1923, reports on an attempted holdup and shooting that had San Franciscans talking for days. Below that giant headline is a story that people across the globe have been talking about for nearly 100 years: the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb. The San Francisco story has all the ingredients of a juicy 1920s tale.
Front pages were the fuel that started a war. The Chronicle’s cover from Feb. 16, 1898, focuses on one story: the USS Maine battleship explosion in Havana. Illustrations and giant headlines communicate the significance of the event: More than 250 U.S. sailors were killed, and the sinking helped trigger the Spanish-American War. “The explosion shook the whole city,” the story on The Chronicle’s front page read. “The windows were broken in many houses.

1st kid, after 2nd kid’s birth: “Sorry, buddy, turn it off. You already watched ‘Godfather Parts I and II,’ and ‘III’ is really tedious anyway.”
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".
