I’m helping my mom organize her house. It’s been a long time coming, and with my husband’s retirement I feel freer be away from home a couple days a week until it’s finished. After I put dinner in the crockpot, that is. Anyway, organization requires cleaning out, purging, getting rid of things. My mom unearthed a few rare treasures this past week. One of which my daughter was ecstatic to see. I’m not going to mention which daughter to protect the innocent and because she knows who she is.
My husband is officially retired. Or tired. However you view the life milestone when it’s time to quit working forever. From what I hear, nice things were said on his last full day, pizza and cake were served, he shook many hands. I’m very proud of him. This past week, he’s been walking around here somewhat stunned. He’s picking things up around the yard and in his shop, that he ignored for years. The pressure of time has been eliminated.
My youngest was a picky eater when she was young. I don’t give much credence to picky eaters. I never coddled her when it came to food, thus not drawing attention to it. I did, however, have rules, which prevented dinner time battles. For my part, I made sure to serve one item she would like, she had to taste everything else, and her next eating occasion was in three hours.
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".
