Sometimes, the thing that binds two people together is an irrational hatred of something kind of mundane. (Don't pretend like you haven't bonded with a friend over hating how tourists walk in New York or selfie sticks.) Some people believe this premise so strongly that there's an entire dating app built around it. Hater is an app that pairs you with your potential soul mate based on the things you mutually dislike.
For the uninitiated, Arby's describes the cured meat as "a pork loin wrapped in roasting skin-on pork belly." The sandwich will feature porchetta that was smoked for eight hours, sliced and topped with provolone, lettuce, tomato, red onion, banana peppers, red wine vinaigrette, and garlic aioli on a toasted sub. If that piques your interest, you won't have to wait long to tear a chunk off the ol' meat mountain.
There are few things more frustrating than that phone call you get when your lease is up. It's your landlord, letting you know rent is about to go up. It happens to people everywhere, but rent doesn't go up at the same rate everywhere. Go Banking Rates has collected year-over-year data on the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in cities across the United States.
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".
