Bartenders may not be the biggest earners, but mixologists would do well to sign a pre-nuptial agreement if they ever get married because their divorce rate is so high. A new graph shows how divorce rates differ among different jobs. Perhaps unsurprisingly, actuaries, who deal with risk assessment, have the lowest divorce rate. On the other end of the spectrum is bartenders and gaming managers, whose divorce rates are more than 15 per cent higher than the median divorce rate.
An 82-year-old woman was forced to skip her own husband's funeral this weekend, after she was viciously beaten by two robbers. The incident was detailed on Facebook by a granddaughter of the Central Heights, Arizona victim, a woman named Virginia. Granddaughter Deanna King-Poeling was one of the last people to see Virginia before the attack. She says she came over to her grandmother's house around 9:30pm, to help her look for her car keys.
Authorities say a homeless man was bitten several times by an alligator, while bathing in a retention pond in Port Charlotte, Florida. Fredric Iman, 68, said he checked the pond for alligators before taking a dip Monday morning around 10:20am. But the nine-foot alligator alluded him, then attacked once he was bathing. 'I turned around, and I know I punched it in the eye,' he told NBC 2. 'I tried to get it away, and it tried to pull me in.'
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".
