My favorite musical when I was growing up was Grease. I loved watching Sandy and Danny dancing the Hand Jive, and I would pump my arms when Greased Lighting came on. It wasn’t exactly a child friendly movie, but I was too young to understand and I just loved the Pink Ladies. When I learned that Papermill Playhouse had Grease in their season I wanted to take Eleanor (they did the PG-13 version).
This year our Halloween was top notch. With the kids in school, family coming to visit, and a town that goes all out we had the best Halloween yet. If you didn’t know we went as Care Bears. Camden picked the theme and then Eleanor picked which bear everyone would be. Since my parents were planning to come we wrangled them into it as well. Since Halloween was on a Saturday we got to celebrate 2 days. Friday was the school parties.
There are certain things I’m very brand loyal to. When I saw an invite in my email to attend an event for StarKist Tuna I was so excited. I immediately got giddy at the thought of getting a picture with Charlie Tuna and felt the need to make a tuna sandwich. We all have a certain way we like tuna. I’m a relish/sweet pickle lover, while Mike likes to add mustard and a few other things. What I love about tuna is it give me the chance to eat a different protein and it’s refreshing.
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".
