Boys with older dads may have an advantage over peers with younger fathers when it comes to academic performance at school, a new study suggests. Researchers studied more than 12,000 sets of twins in the U.K. and found that boys with older dads tended to be more intelligent, better able to focus on their interests, and less sensitive to peer pressure than boys with younger dads.
YouTube videos and car seat manuals make car seats look so easy to install using LATCH. You attach this thingy to that one, you give everything a pull — and it’s in! But when you’re out in your own vehicle, just you and the car seat, things aren’t so easy. The places you attach the LATCH hooks are…where, now? And you’re supposed to hook the seat’s tether on — where is that thing? Could it really be this hard to connect this to that? Could that be right?
If you’ve got kids home for the summer, chances are you’re making slime. We’ve been in Slimefest for the better part of 2017 and, honestly, if I never see a bottle of glue again it will be too soon. We actually buy the gallon jugs because we go through it so quickly. That said, we did nix the Borax a while back after a few isolated reports of kids getting sick from it. I don’t know how true those stories were, but it was enough that my kids wondered if they could find another way.
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".
