Junaid Zubairi is bright and meticulous. He is a computer scientist, with a doctorate from Syracuse University, and a full professor at SUNY Fredonia. In other words, he is a smart man. For the last several years, Zubairi has been pouring that intellect into a project that could save millions of dollars — and maybe lives. Last month, he was granted a United States patent for his Flight Data Tracker, a software system that could potentially replace the black box recorders in airplanes.
ANGOLA — Tommy Alberts was standing at the edge of his beach bar’s patio, sweat beading on his cheeks and forehead and soaking in splotches around the neck of his red Mickey Rats T-shirt. It was a luminous, hot Sunday afternoon, the type they call “Sunday Funday” around this slice of the Lake Erie waterfront. The type that, for 44 years, has helped the Mickey Rats Beach Club survive. Behind Alberts, a row of boats was docked a few splashy steps from the beach.
NEW YORK CITY – If ever an evening captured the mood-swingy candidacy of Donald Trump, it was here in Manhattan, in the lobby of the flagship tower the man named after himself. ¶ It was Tuesday, April 19, just after 10 p.m. Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” was blaring through the speakers. Trump stood behind a podium, dressed in a dark suit and crisp white shirt with a tie that matched the blue on the American flag.
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".
