On Jan. 6, anyone old enough to drink alcohol in the city of San Francisco was also old enough to head to a handful of recently licensed dispensaries and buy some marijuana. As California hustles to process applications for state licenses (all dispensaries hoping to engage in adult use sales must have both city and state approval), seven local dispensaries managed to snag paperwork to be among the first to offer marijuana to non-medical patients.
There’s no wrong night for a Wolf Parade concert. The Montreal quartet is a frenzied yet polished Tasmanian devil of intricate keyboards and snarled vocals. Their show Tuesday night at the Fillmore was a welcome return for the band following a seven-year hiatus in which co-leaders Dan Boeckner and Spencer Krug spiraled off into side projects before returning to release a new album, Cry Cry Cry, last fall.
The music industry may want to investigate what Australia is putting in its water. Following the success of psych-rock outfit Tame Impala and rocker Courtney Barnett, yet another artist of formidable talent has crossed the Pacific with guitar amps in tow. In truth, Jen Cloher has been on the scene since 2005, but with the release of her self-titled fourth album last August, it appears the world is finally taking note.
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".
