"Can't. Even. Handle. It." Dr. Robert Proietto, a veterinarian in New York City, told The Dodo that cats often express enjoyment by rolling around on their backs. "Cats will show similar behavior with other smells, treats and even companions (human and animal) that they like," he said. It turns out there's some science behind the cat's euphoric reaction, too. According to cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy, olives contain a chemical similar to the one in catnip.
President-elect Donald Trump is in the midst of assembling his cabinet and choosing the people who will help him shape the direction of the United States over the next four years. But those who were unsettled by the racist and xenophobic tone set by Trump's presidential campaign, will be only more alarmed by the histories of some of the appointees and their respective patterns of racism or Islamophobia.
Liz Willock was taking what she thought was a normal Uber ride back to the hotel where she was staying in New Jersey during a business trip back in July. When she and her driver got to talking, she realized she had an opportunity to help a stranger in a pretty incredible way. "I believe we were meant to meet," she told Today. It turned out that Ellis Hill, the 63-year-old Darby, Pennsylvania native who happened to be Willock's driver, had a son competing in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
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".
