As any parent can attest to, children and medicine don’t mix. Even infants make their displeasure known when it comes to anything even remotely “medicine-y” tasting, no matter how much Cherry Red Dye 40 is mixed in there to mask the taste. This is why one mom’s hack for getting babies to take their medicine is so genius, moms everywhere will be copying it immediately. Helena Lee, a British mom and nurse practitioner, recently became distraught when her infant son, Alfie, came down with a fever.
When Trump was elected as the 45th president, some of my friends tried to remind me that he promised to protect LGBTQ people. They sent me an article of him holding the rainbow flag, as if he were a proud ally. They said he would keep Mike Pence in check. Because even though he believes in conversion therapy and that gay marriage will lead to “societal collapse,” Vice President Pence doesn’t have the power to hurt my way of life. I will be safe with this presidency, they said.
I only have three kids, but there are currently five children walking around my house right now eating all of the food I just bought. Taylor Swift is blaring in my daughter’s room while my son and his friend are lifting weights in the basement, grunting and throwing things around. They want more friends to come over. They want more food. They are asking me if they can start YouTube channels. In other words, they are killing me slowly.
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".
