Psst, I have good news. Mercury Retrograde will end just in time for New Year's Eve, which means you won't have to carry any bad mojo into 2018. If you're looking for a way to applaud putting 2017 behind you, the best way to celebrate New Year's Eve based on your zodiac sign can ensure you have an epic NYE that you'll actually enjoy. Personally, I think New Year's Eve is one of the most over-hyped holidays.
The 2017 holidays are coming early courtesy of Instagram, which is putting everyone on its "nice" list this year. On the heels of last week's Instagram Stories update, another new feature lets you follow hashtags. If you're excited AF, here's how to get the follow hashtag button on Instagram so you never miss another cute dog photo. "For the first time ever, you'll be able to follow something other than people on Instagram," Instagram shared in a blog post about the update.
The holidays are a stressful time for everyone, but for someone who is new to recovery, the daunting prospect of navigating holiday parties without drugs or alcohol can be challenging, to say the least. Being nervous about how to handle the holidays if you're newly sober is totally normal. The Hazeldon Betty Ford Foundation called Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's the Bermuda triangle for people in recovery, and for a good reason.
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".
