“She gets presents because I love her, not because she meets some impossible standard of perfect behaviour.”“Horrible idea,” one mum wrote . “My five-year-old has already been in tears because a friend of hers got in trouble at school and she was afraid he wouldn’t get any presents when it’s Christmas. Some parents think it’s a brilliant idea - one mum wrote on HuffPost UK Parents Facebook page : “We’ve got one, I ain’t gonna lie! No more messing around at bed time.
The Christmas season is a dream for many children, what with the visits to Santa, copious amounts of chocolate and presents galore. But for anxious kids, meeting family members they haven’t seen for months, sitting on Father Christmas’ knee and a change in routine, are not conducive to good mental health. Miriam Gwynne’s nine-year-old daughter Naomi was diagnosed with anxiety three years ago and the festive period can be difficult for her.
Sam Faiers has shown that when a baby is hungry, you’ve got to stop what you’re doing and feed them asap - even if that means pulling the car over (safely) during a journey. The former ‘TOWIE’ star posted a selfie of herself breastfeeding her newborn daughter - whose name has not yet been announced - while her 23-month-old son Paul was asleep in his car seat next to her. “Pulling over to breastfeed, squished in between two car seats,” Faiers wrote on Instagram on 22 November.
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".
