We were prettty excited when Amazon recently announced their new one-hour wine delivery service for Prime members. It’s impossible to top instant wine, right? Welp, never say never, because Amazon Prime has us all starry-eyed (again). The company just teamed up with Olo, a New York-based food delivery service that’s got over 200 restaurant partners across the country…like Shake Shack and Chipotle (and Cold Stone Creamery and Jamba Juice and Five Guys and Sweetgreen).
The One Thing You Can Do to Stop Receiving Those Pesky Junk CallsScenario: your phone's buzzing, and it’s from a number that’s almost identical to yours. It’s not Mom or Dad…but what if it’s your hometown’s library calling about that book you never returned? Surprise! It’s actually a robot offering you a free vacation to Orlando. (Wow, thanks). So now you’ve wised up. But you get about three random calls a day from your area code, and it’s pretty damn annoying. We feel ya. Here’s how to stop robocalls.
Don’t worry, we’re not talking about that alcoholic Kool-Aid from the ‘90s. Today’s boxed wine is actually pretty amazing. It's cheaper than most bottles, and it’s way better for the environment, because it's easier to transport and recycle. And here’s the kicker: it lasts about a month in the fridge after it’s opened (think of it as your own personal wine on tap). Best of all, each 3-liter carton contains about four bottles’ worth of vino.
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".
