Google yourself. Seriously. You never know what you’ll uncover about yourself. That is if you dare…Take quizzes. Test your knowledge of Renaissance art, Roald Dahl books, or even the best Twilight Zone episodes. Which Spice Girl are you? What type of pizza best sums up your personality? We hate to admit it, but we can’t get enough of these absurd clickbait quizzes. Try your luck at the penny auctions.
The first thing you need to do is loosen those stubborn stains and grease accumulations inside the microwave. To do this, fill your microwave-safe bowl with one cup of water and some chopped-up lemon. Place the bowl in the microwave and turn it on for about three to five minutes (or however long it takes to boil the water). The window of your microwave should become foggy before the job is done. Once the microwave stops, wait 15 minutes before opening it. Open the microwave and remove the bowl.
When you hear the term “refinancing,” you probably picture a large house with a picket fence, a spacious yard, and a broken sink that needs to be repaired with the extra money. But it doesn’t just apply to real estate. People refinance their cars all the time, and while it’s not always the best course of action, there are a few practical reasons to refinance that reliable but expensive sedan or SUV. The reasons for refinancing a vehicle aren’t unlike the reasons for refinancing a home.
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".
