It's widely known how major a decision it was for Meghan Markle to agree to marry Prince Harry. Yeah, they're in love, and yeah, they want to spend the rest of their lives together - but for Meghan, it wasn't as simple as that. Saying yes to Prince Harry meant agreeing to become a full-time senior member of the British Royal Family. It meant giving up her acting career, moving to the UK, and abiding by a whole new set of etiquette rules, both privately and in public.
How many times a week do you start the day with a coffee first thing? I reckon at least five, seeing as coffee is basically required by most humans to even vaguely function. For many people coffee comes before everything; not even breakfast makes its way further up the priority list. But it turns out this habit of drinking coffee on an empty stomach could actually be damaging to your health - especially if you're susceptible to bloating.
There are a few slightly worrying issues about the McCallister family from Home Alone as it is; like the fact that Kevin wasn't taken away from them for neglect after the first time they forgot to take him on holiday, and that it ended up happening again. But a new fan theory delves even further into the festive film's central characters, and has concluded that what's going on is even more sinister than we first thought.
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".
