Henry and I have been diving deep into the world of Rice Krispies Treats these days. It’s kind of a fun project to do with kids because you can’t mess it up, it’s super fast, and there’s lots of pouring. You can put that kid in charge of pouring cups of Rice Krispies until his heart is full to bursting. And he’s absolutely certain that he’s “cooking.” So we put our heads together and decided to make you guys some RKT’s (that’s Rice Krispies Treats, duh) for Easter, in case you need a project to do.
I admit it. Last Christmas, I was that mom who didn’t let Santa sneak any candy into the kids’ stockings. And you know what? They didn’t miss it! Not even a little bit. So in planning their Easter baskets, I’m doing the same and finding fun, festive, and healthy ways to fill up those baskets. This year we’re going with a whole fruit theme, totally inspired by our work with Wonderful Halos.
The Easter stakes are getting higher in the Foy household, gang. Henry’s first Easter, he was about 6 months old. So we put some ears on him and called it a day. The next Easter, we spread a bunch of eggs out on the lawn in clear sight and he just ran around and threw them in a basket. (Or threw them at us.) Last year he was finally old enough to hunt around with friends in the backyard for eggs, and we added Maggie to the mix too. So this year?!
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".
