It's been just over eight years since I left my abusive ex-fiancé. For months after I got out, it was all I could talk about, as if my mind was trying to sort a year of abuse through every conversation I had. Nightmares that he'd come after me, fulfilling the promise to kill me, haunted me every night for a year. I dreamt he'd hurt my family. Later, I learned that this was part of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I couldn't let a man touch me during the first year after I left. I didn't trust them.
We get it, if you weren't in the path of totality, the solar eclipse that occurred on Monday August 21st might have felt like an epic let down. But believe us, it was magical and we have the images to prove it. No one captured it's essence better than these amazing photographers. Get ready to be amazed by the nature. Moments right before totality. This morning was absolutely amazing. The total eclipse was by far one of the most incredible things I have ever witnessed. This is a single exposure.
Everyone in the continental United States will experience this amazing event. NASA has warned us not to look directly at the eclipse so we don't damage our eyes. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Enjoy the full eclipse on this incredible livestream provided by NASA.
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".
