Why am I not a Brady fan? And no, I do not care who he sleeps with, where he vacations or what he does with his hair. The man makes over $20 million per year and he lets a charity buy him multiple new Audis that ring out at almost $100,000. He never says anything wrong. But he also let Welker take the total blame on that pass. Sure, Welker should have caught it, but it’s not as if it was a perfect throw. Welker had to go through contortions to twist around for the attempt.
Everyone has what I call a life garden. What is a life garden? It's a metaphor for the way in which we grow and what we will produce in our lifetime. We choose what we put into the universe and we choose what we allow to grow within us depending on how we cultivate our lives. If we choose a positive lifestyle and surround ourselves with our tribe, like-minded people, we will cultivate a garden of peace and harmony.
Editor's note: Barb Bruno's Ask Barb column appears immediately below this personal note from her concerning the closing of The Fordyce Letter. Early in my career, the Fordyce Letter was my lifeline to learn the staffing and recruiting business. I read each publication and implemented many ideas and strategies that improved my business.
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".
