If you are in charge of running a busy household, it is likely that you spend a lot of time managing your stress levels. This is especially likely if you are responsible for taking care of young children. The most effective way for you to deal with your responsibilities is by planning ahead. Although it is important to focus on the positives, it is also vital that you prepare for the worst. This will help you to stay calm in the event of an emergency.
There is a wealth of entertainment to be found outside of the house. Spark your kid’s interest in doing something both creative and practical by getting them out of the house and involved in the garden – the garden is brimming with possibilities. It is both interactive and stimulating, from keeping worms in the compost heap, and discovering the goings on of an ecosystem, to the upkeep of a pond and watching and monitoring small wildlife. Foster their love and appreciation for the garden.
Do you consider yourself to be a lazy dad? Maybe you were fit before you had kids and you let things slide when they were born. Maybe you’ve never really been fit, but you’d like to set a good example for your children. There are so many reasons you should get off the couch and start working out today. Not only will you begin to look better, you’ll be creating a healthier, happier lifestyle.
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".
