A former co-worker of mine who I thought was also a friend has been bashing me against my back to her new co-workers at her new job. I heard from a mutual friend of ours at the new workplace who also sent me images of some of the things my former co-worker said about me on Facebook. I’m really hurt by this and have no idea where it’s coming from. I always thought we were on good terms.
My husband works at home most evenings. After dinner he’s often on the couch with his head down in his laptop. He’s also a big sports fan and has several TV shows he likes to ‘watch’. The problem is, we have just one TV and he’ll sit in front of it with his computer on his lap, completely ignoring me. I’m OK with him working but I’m not even sure he’s paying attention to his shows when they’re on. And I usually have to wait til he goes to bed to catch up on my shows.
My fiance and I have been saving money for the late couple of years. The money was supposed to go toward paying for our wedding but we’ve decided to keep it very small so we’ll have a lot of money left over afterwards. I was hoping we’d use it to go on a longer honeymoon, but my fiance has other plans. He wants to buy a new car – and not just any car – a minivan. He says it’s the perfect vehicle for us because we’ll be having kids soon.
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".
