Fort McMurray – Jacquie Chmilar started 2018 by getting an email she had been hoping for, but was unsure would ever come. On New Year’s Day, a woman had emailed the 10-year-old Fort McMurray girl that her nine-year-old daughter had found her message in a bottle, which she had thrown into the ocean six months prior during a visit to Newfoundland. It had washed onto Widemouth Beach in Cornwall, U.K. when it was found by a nine-year-old girl on the other side of the Atlantic.
Jacquie Chmilar, 10, poses next to a photograph of one of the messages she cast into the Atlantic during a July trip to Newfoundland on January 16, 2018. The message was one of two found on a beach in Cornwall, U.K. earlier this month.
@Jane_Gerster Oh, definitely analyzed. Like how many times was the "democracy needs us!" argument made from editors of papers not respected locally? Or had a staff rewriting press releases before quitting after a few months? (Not referring to TH, though. I've never been to Moose Jaw.)
"Adams, still reviled by some skeptical voters as the face of the I.R.A. during its campaign against British rule in Northern Ireland, hands over to a successor with no direct involvement in the three decades of conflict that came to an end in 1998." https://nyti.ms/2FYXog6
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".
