Learn to talk to your child about fire prevention with NFPA’s Sparky School House in this sponsored post. A few weeks ago, I pulled up to my neighborhood and saw smoke coming from a building next to our home. My daughter was in the backseat of the car, so I parked down the block and quickly called 911. As we were waiting for the fire truck to show up, our neighbors started coming outside and I left the call to fill them in.
Learn about the new Spencer by Jaclyn Smith collection at Kmart and how to get great pics of your crawling baby in this sponsored post. My son is crawling. He’s five months old and already on the move. I was not ready! Not only did we have to rush to baby proof our home, now I have to learn a new skill. I’ve obviously been snapping tons of pics of him up to this point, but now that he’s moving, it’s not so easy.
Living in the Bay Area comes with a boatload of benefits. From the mild weather to the amazing food, there’s just so much to love about being here. So what you may not be able to afford a house and traffic into the city on a Saturday can make you feel like stabbing someone, at least it’s a good place to raise kids! When Ayva and I moved here, I knew I was going to be giving her a better quality of life than I could in Philadelphia, but there were a few unexpected perks that I just wasn’t expecting.
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".
