Double-fisting a syrupy drink outside Vid’s deli in South Jersey on Thursday morning, retired mail carrier Tim LeConey and a fellow Riverside native recounted their introductions to BOOST! like aging sailors reminiscing about their first sights of the sea. “It was in my bottle,” LeConey said. Riverside Township Mayor George Conard added: “Yeah, it’s called milk-BOOST! I used to put a little bit of BOOST! syrup in my kid’s milk bottle.”Some people call it a soda, but it’s not technically a soft drink.
What do you remember from your last trip to the Shore? You rode the Ferris Wheel and bought your kid an ice cream cone bigger than his head. You played volleyball shirtless and laughed at your own bad aim. You watched sneaker-clad dads twisting and turning umbrellas into the sand, muttering expletives. Maybe you saw the Fudgy-Wudgy guy pushing a big-wheeled cooler up and down the beach, yelling: “Give your tongue a sleigh ride!” But was that really on your last Shore visit?
This summer, mystery swirled as to whether the 19th-century serial killer known as H.H. Holmes was really buried in a Philadelphia-area grave. Last week, in the eighth and final episode of American Ripper on the History Channel, viewers finally learned the answer. An anthropologist at the University of Pennsylvania Museum, however, knew the truth well beforehand.
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".
