If you've ever dreamed of escaping to the mountains in a quaint village where you can have a fresh start, here's your chance to make that dream a reality — and get paid for it. Yes, a small town in the Swiss Alps actually wants to pay you for living there. The village of Albinen, located near Leukerbad in the canton of Valais, is voting on an initiative that will offer money to non-residents who choose to make it their home for at least 10 years.
If you've ever had a Turkey Day disaster, rest assured you're in good company: Martha Stewart has been there and done that, too. The domestic guru opened up to DailyMail.com about the first Thanksgiving she hosted — which almost didn't happen after she made a critical mistake. Several years ago, as a young newlywed, Martha decided to be bold and invite the whole family over for their first Thanksgiving all together.
If your husband has ever driven you nuts by forgetting where he parked the car, you can rest easy knowing he probably didn't forget as long as one German man did. This Frankfurt driver forgot his parking spot for a whopping 20 years — and amazingly, he was just reunited with it. Back in 1997, the man, then 56 years old, reported to city police that his car had been stolen.
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".
