There are a lot of sacrifices that come with debt, and while some of them are financial, others are very personal. According to MarketWatch, student debt is growing at an alarming rate, and a survey on The Impact of Student Debt on the Daily Lives of Young Americans by the American Student Assistance (ASA) says up to 29 percent of couples are putting off marriage until a later date—but why?
Here at The Knot, we’ve seen more than a few amazing proposals, but there’s something about a restaurant proposal that gets us every time. Whether it’s a romantic dinner date at your favorite local eatery or a special reservation at the five-star restaurant you’ve always dreamed about going to, nothing is sweeter than sharing a meal together before the big moment. We turned to Wesley Conger, general manager of The Signature Room in Chicago, for advice.
Pinterest just revealed the go-to color of the season, and we had to check it out. According to its 2017 Spring Trend Forecast, mauve—a pale purple-pink color—is all the rage. And this romantic neutral is influencing bridal beauty trends, from eye shadow palettes to nail polish. Pins in mauve nail polish are up 170 percent this year already, making it especially popular for wedding nails this spring.
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".
