Holiday parties are upon us and while it can be stressful to think about menu-planning for a large crowd, you can never go wrong with a great cheese board. But good cheese can be incredibly expensive and if you’ve already blown your budget on booze, décor and other appetizers, you may be wondering if you can get by with serving a few slices of American cheese. Fret not, party planners.
Getting your flu shot, disinfecting your smartphone and washing your gloves after they grip subway poles can help keep you (and those around you) healthy. AndreasKermannMy first cold of the season has come and gone, but as a New York City dweller, where exactly it came from is anyone's guess. Could be the subway, could be my barre studio or could be any of my three kids, two of whom share communal tables with other (coughing) kids in crowded public schools.
Move over, juices, smoothies, and whatever else #healthyish people are drinking these days. You need to make room for kombucha. Whether you’re a total newbie or a ‘booch’ fanatic, here’s the low-down on the drink that’s got everyone talking, sipping, and probably burping. If you started drinking it because your super-cool yoga instructor always has one on hand, but you have no idea what it actually is, we’re here for you.
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".
