Read an interesting blurb in Marketwatch about the deals to be had in January. 2 are obvious, one is not. If you want the best time of year to buy anything, head hereWhite Sales on Sheets, Towels and more: For some reason it's the best time of year for sheets and towels. Even better deals with closings at Sears and Macy's.
I found this interesting! In years past the #1 New Years resolution that we make is "Get Fit," or "Lose Weight" or Eat Better," but not this year. According to a new Marist Poll, the #1 goal for ourselves in 2018 is to be a "better person." What does that mean? Are we feeling guilty for the things we've said on social media? Are we starting to turn our backs on news networks that pit us against each other?
Posted this on Twitter after our neighbor's Christmas party over the weekend. The theme was "Favorite Character from a Christmas Song..." Yes, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. I look like somebody the neighbors would call the cops on. My wife, of course, looks cute. Last night's neighborhood Christmas party theme, fav holiday TV character or song.. together @KelceyFox9 and I are... Guess? pic.twitter.com/wYnLnbKy7N— Dave Kent (@DaveKentShow) December 10, 2017
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".
