I have been a lot of things in life. I started out as an artist when I broke from the stick figure form in elementary school. Then I specialized as a manga artist for my middle school years.

What happens when maternal instinct goes into overdrive? After the birth of her first daughter at 32, Patricia Tomasi, was plagued by unwanted thoughts and fears. Horrible scenarios would play out in her head of things like her new baby falling down the stairs. She didn’t want to think about these scenarios, but they popped into her mind, day and night. “I was thinking, ‘where the heck is that coming from?’ I would get heart palpitations, I couldn’t sleep.
In a recent study that ranked 50 countries by overall happiness, the United States slotted in at 23rd. This finding might seem incongruous with the American dream: "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." But that rhetoric – the constant pursuit of happiness – might be what's holding the United States back. On Friday, Oct. 18, the 2013 Stanford Roundtable, "Are You Happy Now?" convened five experts to discuss what happiness is and why many Americans are unhappy.
As world leaders convene in the Paris summit to discuss ways to curtail climate change, you might be resting easy, thinking that you’re doing enough to save the environment by driving a hybrid and recycling. But did you ever stop and think about the carbon footprint of sending an email? Or reading this article on your device? It’s a bitter realization that pretty much everything we do that requires power leaves a carbon footprint.
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".
