Purvi Sarup’s first try at flag football came with more than a surprising win — she got a partner for life. It was a sweltering day in August 2015 in Adams Morgan, and Purvi — not one for sports or competition — reluctantly agreed to accompany a co-worker to a game because the team needed an extra female player. “I don’t know what took over me, but I decided to go,” says Purvi, 27.
For Larry Sternbane and Sam Lee, it was love at first flight. Well, not exactly a flight, but it did involve an airport. Their relationship began online, where Sam, 33, a NASA contractor, caught Larry’s eye. The pair, who both live in the Washington area, started chatting in June 2014 and decided to meet in person. Sam happened to be flying home from a work conference in Indianapolis and Larry jumped at the chance to pick him up at one of his favorite places in Washington — Reagan National Airport.
Shopkeepers Gallery is a space for just about anything — a home goods store, an art gallery, Vietnamese-focused dining, a family hangout. Seda Nak wouldn’t have it any other way. “A space like Shopkeepers creates a little bit of a common ground in our city,” says owner Nak, 31, who opened the store (1231 Florida Ave. NE) in January in Washington’s Trinidad area, not far from H Street. It’s the only business on a residential block. Whether visitors buy something isn’t Nak’s primary goal.
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".
