Forget red states and blue states. The United States is way more colorful (and adventurous!) when it comes to paint colors than electoral maps. A new infographic from BEHR reveals which hue each state buys the most compared to it neighbors, and the results are a bona fide rainbow. Oklahoma loves an orange that's a deadringer for Oklahoma State University's logo. Arizona can't get enough of a shade reminiscent of the Grand Canyon named Smoke Bush Rose, while Florida digs the tropical pink King Salmon.
It's no secret that 2017 is a banner year for Lyme disease. Scientists predicted the prevalence of the disease would jump this summer, and many parents can attest to that scary increase too. Almost every day a new video or post goes viral after yet another child falls ill to tick-borne diseases like Lyme or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Avoiding the outdoors this season isn't the answer though. One mom is urging families to prepare themselves by assembling a "tick kit" instead.
• Police officers and animal rescuers found 84 Great Danes at a New Hampshire estate. • The owner sold them for thousands of dollars but kept the dogs in horrific conditions. • The Humane Society is now helping the animals and accepting donations for their care. Neighbors of a 14,000-square-foot mansion in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, often complained of barking, but nothing could fully prepare authorities for what they found inside of the seemingly-elegant estate.
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".
