You can never have enough crayons, markers, and paints on hand ⏤ especially with Easter approaching. Not only are their eggs to decorate and holiday pictures to color, but leave the caps off even for just a night and those markers are done. So when Crayola has a big one-day sale ⏤ slashing prices on everything from finger paints and sidewalk chalk to spiral art kits and their popular Light-up Tracing Pad ⏤ parents are wise to act fast. Today is one of those days.
Toys ‘R’ Us and Babies ‘R’ Us are closing their doors ⏤ RIP Geoffrey the Giraffe. With this came speculation as to how long the stores’ gift cards would be honored. The company recently announced their plan for rewards points and gift cards. The retailer says it will honor all Babies ‘R’ Us and Toys ‘R’ Us gift cards for the next 30 days as it liquidates 800 US stores. After that, it says the cards will be worthless. Rewards points can be used until next Wednesday, 2/21.
For as uncelebrated as pet groomer is as a profession in the real world, it’s practically akin to an astronaut when it comes to toys. Every popular doll company ⏤ from Barbie to American Girl to Journey Girls ⏤ has a pet grooming character or accessory set. Most are targeted to girls and include a female doll and their ubiquity, no doubt, has to do with the fact kids love animals. Only the last part makes any sense.
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".
