In April 2002, Rob Nager felt he was at a crossroads with his 14-year career in corporate sales and business development. After spending the summer walking and hiking with clients’ dogs, the Needham resident founded Decadent Dog, a full-service pet care company offering those services as well as pet sitting in owners’ homes. Nager, who was named the 2008 International Pet Sitter of the Year by Pet Sitters International, is also certified in pet first aid and CPR. Q.
After Holocaust survivor Nechama Tec’s memoir, “Dry Tears: The Story of a Lost Childhood,” was translated into Polish, her daughter accompanied her on a book tour in 2005. While in Poland, Leora Tec was surprised and moved by the heartfelt commemorations of Jewish life by non-Jewish Poles — particularly in Lublin, the city in which her mother was born. During World War II, Nechama was forced to flee Lublin and survived by passing as a Catholic girl with false papers.
With each passing birthday and holiday, Valerie Friedholm said her children seemed to accumulate a growing number of plastic, battery-operated toys that captured their attention for a few days before being cast off. When asked for gift ideas, the Sudbury resident struggled to think of something of true value. What could create memories and then be passed down to younger siblings?
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".
