Ah, winter. Some of us can't get enough of this time of year, hitting up the slopes and doing as many wintery activities as humanly possible. Others love to hate on the season. Curse the slushy streets for f*cking up our leather heels, and the snow for burying our cars three feet under in the chilliest of temps, amiright? Oh, and parting ways with our cozy blanket fortress in the morning? Beyond tragic.
Happy almost New Year to all of us, because JAY-Z's "Family Feud" video is finally here on Friday, Dec. 29 on TIDAL. What an epic way to close off a stressful week and a stressful year, aka 2017, amiright? If you don't already have a TIDAL account, you're seriously about to feel all the FOMO and should probably fix that, literally ASAP. Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and many more celebs make an appearance in the video and we can hardly handle how epic it truly is.
No matter where you're at in life, you'll never be too old for a snow day. Since the beginning of time, being blessed with a snow day was truly the greatest gift. Even if you snoozed your alarm 10 times on the regular to drag your sorry butt out of bed for school, if there was a possibility for a snow day, things went down much differently. Your body automatically hopped out of bed at the crack of dawn to look outside the window in hopes of seeing a blanket of snow covering the ground.
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".
