Baby Scarlett is 3 months old now and it’s been one heck of a ride. We’ve been fortunate in the sense that she hasn’t been too fussy of a baby, but as any new parent will tell you, it’s a steep learning curve. One of the hardest things I’ve found so far is just managing my time. Everything now revolves around Scarlett’s schedule which leaves limited time to do my own thing. Now, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it just means my wife and I need to be efficient with our time.
If you’re headed to Japan and plan on spending some time in Kyoto, there’s a good chance that you’re planning a trip to Hiroshima. As you do your research, you’ll quickly learn that the island of Miyajima is just 30 minutes from Hiroshima and is another place that’s worth spending some time. But are Hiroshima and Miyajima in one day from Kyoto possible? Yes, and here’s why you should do it. Hiroshima is a must visit for obvious reasons.
When CHASE decided to pull the Amazon.ca Visa card, there were some concerns from the credit card community that Canadians would soon have limited choice when it comes to credit cards with no foreign transaction fees. However, a few months later, it appears that we’ve been given even more choice than ever. The most recent card to come to market is the HSBC Premier World Elite MasterCard which arguably has the best benefits of all Canadian credit cards with no foreign transaction fees.
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".
