Have you seen the buzz about the 12 STRONG movie? When Hubby sees that a film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer he has to go! Not only is it a true story, but it’s about events we’ve all always wondered about. A declassified true story of the first American soldiers sent into Afghanistan after 9/11. Twelve brave U.S. soldiers dropped everything and ventured into an unknown land. They were outnumbered 5,000 to 1, to complete one of the most successful special forces missions of all time.
Thank you Fender for sponsoring this post, My Teen’s Love for Guitar Playing. Learn guitar at home with Fender Play! The weather has been freezing for most of the country. I love seeing pictures of my South Carolina friends buried in snow, when here in Colorado there is none! We’ve been enjoying this fall-like weather with as much outside time as we can fit in. The other day, C’Man brought his guitar along for a a little fresh air practice.
Looking over my book reviews on Goodreads and found out I read 51 books in 2017! I love sharing books and compiled a list of my favorite ones for you from this past year and I titled my Best Books of 2017. You can see there is a good mix! The Flame Bearer, 10th in Saxon Series by Bernard Cornwell. A historical fiction series about the Vikings and it’s a show too – The Last Kingdom. All the Single Ladies by Dorothea Benton Frank. Love this author because her books are based in the Charleston area.
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".
