The sensation of feeling your child’s heart beating against your chest as you gently drift into sleep is surely one of the most unique and intimate sensations in the world. Then they roll over, stick a foot in your ribs and fart in your face, and you wonder why you didn’t book an extra bed when planning your night away.
British women may love shopping for clothes and shoes – but almost half admit to having bought a pair of shoes they’ve never worn. Recent research into the nation’s secret shopping habits revealed that 46% say they’ve splashed out on shoes they’ve never worn, and over a third (37%) have clothes hanging in their wardrobes that still have the price tags on.
With cramped public transport and less spare time to exercise in our increasingly busy lives, more people are turning towards the growing trend of a running commute. So instead of sitting in traffic or waiting for a bus that’ll never come, women all over the country are lacing up their trainers and jogging to work. A growing trend shown by the fact that 51% more people searched for the ‘best backpack for running to work’ last year than the year before.
@ArgosHelpers It was meant for me. I asked for it to be delivered to a neighbour as it was raining. It was left behind my bin. However I can tell it’s the wrong size mattress for my child so want to return it. This is proving very difficult!
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".
