It’s been quite a year. Politics, culture and yes, even beer have devolved into divisive topics with over-opinionated zealots on all sides. There’s hope, however, and I think it might lie in beer. Despite border wall prototypes popping up in rural San Diego, Mexican/American craft beer collaborations have taken off like never before. Several factors are contributing to this shift: There’s Baja California’s proximity to San Diego and a country-wide relaxation of alcohol regulations in 2013.
Hi, I'm Beth. I'm a full-time freelancer writer who works from home and simultaneously parents my 9-month-old son, and I'm here to tell you that being a work-at-home mom is no picnic. "But Beth! You don't have to report to a manager, and you get to hang out with your son all day! What could be so bad about that?" I'm sorry, could you repeat that? I was too busy caring for another human life while also financially supporting my family to pay you any attention.
As a mom who works at home with my 9-month-old son by my side all day, I can personally attest that the report of work-at-home moms actually working two full-time jobs is totally true. Between caring for your child (or children) and running your business like a boss, the hours can be brutally long. But that’s not stopping women from pursuing motherhood as well as career goals.
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".
