Most people never leave home without their cell phones, but frigid cold temperatures can affect your electronics if you aren't careful. "If you leave your phone in the car there's the possibility that you can freeze the LCD in your phone, the liquid crystal," said Joshua Watters, owner of Mr. Mustache Phone Repair. He said for the most part, your phone or tablet will be just fine in the cold for a short period of time. After a few hours though things will start to go south.
When temperatures are this low it's important to protect your animals. That applies to wild animals too. From peacocks to kangaroos, animals at the Saginaw Children's Zoo are hunkering down and snuggling up to stay warm. "The otters love the snow, love the winter. They're really well equipped for it," said Mia Bauer, lead keeper for the zoo. The two otters at the zoo are just fine with the cold temperatures. "They have really dense fur.
A new law in Michigan aims to fight opioid addiction by requiring doctors to check an opioid registry before prescribing, making it harder for addicts to doctor shop. While the goal is to reduce and control the flow of opioids across the state, health experts suggest the law could do more harm than good. Last year, more people died of opioid overdoses than car accidents, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. That is why Lt. Gov.
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".
