For most adventure-minded families, summer vacation is the most anticipated trip of the year. It’s the perfect opportunity to spend copious quality time together while brushing up on everyone’s skills (or learning a new sport entirely) in the warm weather. No bundling up, no homework, no problem. Deciding on just the right destination for your week in the wild, however, is a delicate matter, made tricky by each family’s particular makeup. Are your kids toddlers or teenagers?
At the lowest price point, your helmet will have an expanded polystyrene (EPS) liner that is fully or partially covered with a hard plastic shell or moderately flexible plastic shell. EPS, which is in almost all helmets, looks like the same stuff a grocery store cooler is made of. At the lowest price points, it’s glued, taped or molded to its shell.
Child-carriers may be one of the most versatile pieces of parenting gear around. Yes, their intended purpose is to help take your kid on hikes without losing versatility — and they’re damn good at that — they’re also great for airport days and general moving around town. No, they won’t replace a stroller, but they have everything one needs for the trail and are a great way to help active parents keep up with their old habits while keeping kids safe and happyAll kid-carriers are not created equal.
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".
