Re. Nov. 6 story, "‘Sharrows’ being added to busy Washington road":I was so excited to see that pedal bikes will now own half of the roads with “Sharrows,” I almost soiled myself.As I sit in my motor vehicle at a busy traffic intersection, I see four pedal bikers weave their way between stopped cars and then dart out between the cross-traffic to the center of the road.
After you retire, you can probably get by with just one car – or perhaps no car at all. The cost of Uber, Lyft, taxis or bus passes may seem like a lot of money trickling out of your pocket, but when you consider the amount you're not spending on gas, maintenance, license fees and insurance, it's probably much less expensive. You can always rent a car when you want to take a weekend trip or have a special need. Let your subscriptions lapse.
Retirees have a unique opportunity to move to a place that costs less and provides a high quality of life. The challenge is finding a place that meets all of your criteria for a retirement spot. A new U.S. News analysis compared the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the United States as potential retirement locations. The study included data about housing affordability, desirability, happiness, taxes, the job market and access to top-quality hospitals.
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".
