"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever." As a young girl, I waited with anticipation for our family gathering each Christmas Eve. The area beneath our tree overflowed abundantly with gifts. I loved all the festive, brightly colored wrappings. However, I couldn't wait to tear through them and see what was beneath all the beautiful paper. Before I opened my gifts, I carefully read the tags so I knew who they were from. I found one from my aunt.
"For each person will have to bear (be equal to understanding and calmly receive) his own (little) load (of oppressive faults.)" --When was the last time you were late and expected someone would understand? How about the time you left your coffee cup on the table for someone else to clean up? Or maybe you accidentally left the peanut butter jar lid loose and instead of smooth and creamy, the next person who opened the jar discovered the contents were dry and stale.
"I cannot go with these, for I am not used to them." How many times when you were a child did you say this phrase or hear it said to you? I recently thought about these words when pondering something I had been wanting to do. Due to some physical limitations, I couldn't do it the same way most people do. I needed a little creative thinking. I dared myself to get motivated and take the chance. However, when I compared myself with others, I didn't really feel equipped to perform the task.
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".
