Everyone has their favorite pillow or blanket. The one that’s the right amount of soft and cushy to send you off into an epic afternoon nap. And this isn’t exclusive to humans, apparently. A Great Dane named Quincy knows this feeling all too well. His unicorn pillow is his favorite cuddle buddy, and he was caught on video carrying “Uni” around the house and into the living room to chill with the family.
Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. is a known dog lover, but the 2017 World Series Champ took it to a whole new level when he threw a big birthday party for his dog, Riggs. McCullers Jr. shared photos of the bash on Instagram (@lancemccullers43), with the caption, “Happy Bday to my baby boy Riggs! #Rigginsturns3ish.” The festivities included balloons, cake, and a bunch of Riggs’ doggo friends. The birthday boy even got to wear a crown. Riggs is 3 years old now, and clearly a very lucky pup.
Humans don’t really get a choice when it comes to cat adoption. The cats choose us, and the rest is history. That’s certainly what happened to Connor Manning when he spotted a stray cat on his way home one night. He said hello to the cat, and she started following him, as he explained on Instagram. Manning named her “Socks” and hung out with her for a bit that night. He had to leave, so he left a bed outside for her, hoping she’d stay, or at least return for a visit.
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".
