It was quite a night for moms at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards. The evening’s biggest winners—HBO’s Big Little Lies and Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale—feature multidimensional mothers at the heart of the shows. And, as usual, almost all of the winners gave wonderfully touching shoutouts to their moms in their acceptance speeches.
If you’re giving birth soon but haven’t figured out how to afford maternity leave, here’s an idea: move to Germany. Not only can you fuel your fried food cravings with lots of schnitzel, you’ll also be able to rake in a tidy sum in maternity leave pay. In 2014, the country drastically raised the amount it pays some moms when they take leave—by more than $25,127 a year for the highest-earning moms—in hopes that women would have more babies. New research shows the plan is working.
Parenting and guilt pretty much go hand in hand these days, but if you guessed it’s because we work too much, think again. A new study confirms that we’re all walking around feeling bad about our parenting choices: American parents feel an average of 23 pangs of guilt a week for parenting decisions we feel aren’t up to our standards. That’s according to a poll of 2,000 parents of school-age children conducted in August 2017, sponsored by Farm Rich.
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".
