We’re approaching our state’s 139th birthday, and to celebrate all those candles, the History Colorado museum in Denver will be free to the public on Aug. 1. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, the center at 1200 Broadway will offer food, music, dance and — naturally — exhibits on how Colorado’s past has shaped the state and its residents today. The festival will include demonstrations on blacksmithing, adobe brick making, gold mining, chalk art, alpaca fiber arts, beekeeping and roping.
New Mexico is known as the Land of Enchantment — vehicles announce it right on their license plates — and the wonder is not limited to the azure skies, centuries-old history, artist colonies and its status as all-around cultural melting pot. Food is a huge lure for visitors and residents alike.
Just why do the Colorado Rockies have a purple triceratops as the team mascot? Beantown residents visiting Coors Field this weekend aren’t the only folks pondering this question — so are a national television audience and even a few Rockies fans. Dinger is the portly critter’s name, and he bears about as much resemblance to the three-horned Cretaceous-era dinosaur as your UncleElbert.
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".
