Snow accumulation in Northeast Ohio could arrive by the end of the week, primarily in the snow belt, and the first arctic blast of the season is likely coming Friday. Watch live at 10:35 p.m. as Jason Nicholas and Jeff Tanchak discuss what to expect this weekend:Here we go! The end of the work week will bring our first shot for accumulating (minor) snowfall. (Do your homework. You're still going to school.) This won't be anything major, but it is a sign of the times.
We’re excited to announce two new preview features in Azure Functions:In serverless functions, as with many application frameworks, it’s commonly recommended to write your code to be stateless, and this is the best practice. What is often not discussed in detail, though, is how should you manage that state then? For trivial scenarios like just standard user data, databases are an obvious option, or for messaging between applications, a queue service is sufficient.
The Warhammer Fantasy setting has been a staple in tabletop gaming since time immemorial. I remember hanging out at the local Games Workshop and getting introduced to the hobby by veterans of the game. While I never really took to playing the tabletop game, I was always interested in painting the figurines and reading up on the lore. That remained the case until a friend of mine gave me a code for Total War: Warhammer.
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".
