My gram is truly one of the coolest people on this planet. She's the person who taught me some of my most treasured lessons from how to uncover secret hiding spots for garden fairies to the perfect application method for lipstick. That's why every time the gift giving season rolls around, I go back and forth with what the perfect gift is to buy her. And now that my parents are grandparents to my daughter, the want to find the ideal gift is similar. You too?
I freaking love the smell of fresh pine — and I'm allergic to it. As a kid, my parents always had a live tree. The moment it was upright, I would break out, would start sneezing like a maniac, and develop hives. It took them a bit to figure out that my reaction was the result of my allergy to a tree — thanks, mom and dad — and, when they did, they switched to an artificial tree. But allergies aside, are artificial Christmas trees safer than real trees?
There's no doubt about it: Moms are flipping awesome. So when the holidays roll around, it's crucial to snag something awesome for them, am I right? It's always nice to spoil mom with spa treatments and snuggly sweaters, but what are some useful 2017 gifts for mom? If you're like me, then you are always on the hunt for new ideas because, hey, I know so many wonderful moms who deserve all the lovin' around the holidays.
“Three months after having my daughter, I had to make the difficult decision to go back on medication and stop breastfeeding. I definitely felt cheated, but knew it was important to take care of the things impacting my #mentalhealth.” @MelainieRogershttps://t.co/CtpIiIehiQ#ED
“For me, pregnancy gave me this level of respect for a body that for so many years I had hated and my eating disorder had caused me to abuse, and here I was at a place of healing that allowed me to take that step I was told I never would.” @AllianceforEDAhttps://t.co/CtpIiIehiQ
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".
