Henry Martyn Robert is far better known today for the rules he introduced for the proper conduct of assemblies than he is for literally lifting Galveston from the nadir of the 1900 Storm.Robert was a stubborn sort, the sort of man who could attend a rowdy church meeting — as he did in 1863 — and come away determined to research and annotate and publish the proper rules for conducting an assembly of any sort.Then 26 years old, the South Carolina-born, West Point-educated engineer spent parts...
With The Daily News operating out of Houston because of a wartime order for civilians to evacuate Galveston, and with telegraph service disrupted, it took the paper the better part of two weeks to report the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.Which, as far as Willard Richardson was concerned, Lincoln had had coming.In an editorial on April 27, 1865, 13 days after a Confederate loyalist named John Wilkes Booth had, on Good Friday, shot the president, the owner and publisher of The Daily News...
Less than a year after the Japanese destruction of Pearl Harbor drew America into World War II, U.S. troops joined the Allied fight for North Africa.The American forces, pressing from the west across the Sahara, and British forces, pushing from the east, caught German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel’s Afrika Korps in an inexorable pincer in the sand and mountains of Libya.By May 1943, many of Rommel’s Axis troops were dead or captured.By July, the battle for North Africa was over, and tens of...
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".
