Military suicide epidemic compels survivor families to speak out
Sweet, sweet caffeine — what did you even do before coffee? It's gotten you through exams, all-nighters, big projects, and mornings in general, and you appreciate that. But is coffee helping you get things done as much as you think it is? In this case, quantity may run out over quality: There may not be a direct relationship between how much coffee you guzzle and how good your work is.
There are as many reasons to fall behind on credit card payments as there are cardholders, but one thing became clear this summer: More and more of us are doing it. The New York Federal Reserve, which is the largest in the system based on assets and activity, released a report this week showing that 4.4 percent of U.S. cardholders became delinquent for the first time between Jan. 1 and March 31 of this year. Last year, that number was only 3.5 percent. It doesn't stop there.
Maybe you recently found that greatest of surprises in your mailbox — a brand-new, just-heavy-enough and weirdly nice-smelling 2018 Ikea catalog. Whether you grew up with Ikea products or fell in love once you struck out on your own, you're probably familiar with that potent mix of aggravation and pride that comes when you finally assemble that Hamnes dresser, that Kallax shelf unit or that Malm bed frame. But one huge community takes things way beyond that.
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".
