The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 will truly be a once-in-a-lifetime event for anyone who doesn’t travel the world to see eclipses. A total solar eclipse, which happens when the moon covers the sun completely during its orbit of the Earth, is rare. The August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse is the first time a total solar eclipse has been visible for any part of the contiguous U.S. since 1979, 38 years ago.
The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 is finally here, so you might be wondering if you need special solar eclipse glasses for your dogs and cats. The good news is, unlike humans, they do not need special glasses since they are unlikely to look at the sun. It should be just like a normal day for your Figaro and Fido. “It’s no different than any other day,” Angela Speck, co-chair of the National Solar Eclipse Task Force, said during an August 21 meeting with the media, the Wichita Eagle reports.
Rhode Island, like the rest of New England, will unfortunately not get in on the fun of experiencing a total solar eclipse today during the Great American Eclipse of 2017. Still, residents of the Ocean State will at least see a beautiful partial solar eclipse and there are events going on. The eclipse is expected to begin at 1:28 p.m. ET and will end at 4:00 p.m. ET. The maximum coverage of the sun will be seen at 2:47 p.m. ET.
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".
