According to Oxford’s English Dictionary: Synonyms for America are: the United States of America, the USA, the States, the land of the free, God’s own country. According to my elderly neighbor, who is around 89-90 years old, he said to me, “over there you have the United States but here in Israel we have America.” I could not agree more, as a Jew that is precisely the point. Why am I here, why do I live in Israel , and why do I like it so much?
A week ago I got out of bed at the usual time, around 6:45am, and felt as if I was walking on a cloud. Someone was being really good to me this day, I felt blessed. It is not going to be easy to put into words the feelings felt on this obviously super special day, nor do I know if I can adequately convey to you what such a time in life this day is for a parent. It was The Wedding Day of my daughter.
Your house is so much more than just a house, it is a place of comfort combined with a trillion memories and too many significant moments and milestones to even get into. The house where any of us live is a HOME and therefore, is a place where life unfolds and is filled with love, laughter and naturally, tears. But it is all of that which keeps us going back H O M E for more. I need to say goodbye to what has been our home for 27 years.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
