Your favorite gadget is tracking your every move. Smartphones can log your daily routine right down to the exact location and the time you were there. As TMJ4's I-Team discovered it's almost impossible to turn it all off. All those apps on your phone that make things so convenient are also virtual spies, and most of us are giving them permission to track our every move. Matthew Wood always has his smartphone with him, but he's not happy about everything it can do.
Mercury, arsenic, lead. All toxins that could be in your pet's food. And if you're buying the best for your dog or cat a new study found that expensive food might not be the safest.The I-Team looked into the data from a national non-profit. It studied more than 900 dog and cat food products. All were screened for a long list of toxins and contaminants. What the group found has some local pet owners shocked.Lori Morse has two cats; she buys the food she knows they'll eat.
It's called presbyopia. At least 100 million Americans have it - symptoms usually start around the age of 40 when your near vision starts to fail. The cure? Reading glasses to correct your near vision. A new procedure is promising to fix the problem, but does it really let you ditch your readers for good?
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
