Every great man has stood where you’re standing now - on the edge of a New Year which offers all the promise and potential of a fresh set of challenges. Challenges that speak to your soul and are ready to reward you for your grit, boldness, and inner strength if you’re willing to see it through to the end. Sadly, some men fall short of their goals and are left to deal with the disappointment and frustration at the end of the year.
As the New Year approaches, chances are that you’re using it as an opportunity to take direction of your life and pursue meaningful goals. But as your making plans consider that many men fall short or quit along the way. It’s not that they were weak or incapable, but that they lacked a set of principles to guide them when faced with obstacles. It’s easy to set goals, but once the initial enthusiasm wears off it starts to feel like drudgery making it easy to become distracted and forget your goals.
It’s that time of year again. The holidays are fast approaching, and if you thought your life was already busy enough, think again. Before you know it, you’ll be running from party to party and stuffing yourself with the best meals you’ve had all year. But the winter holidays are about more than gluttony and good food. This is the time to reflect on what’s truly important: your friends and family, and the relationships that make your life meaningful.
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".
