Even though we're going to start a warming trend this weekend, it's still going to be chilly. Afternoon highs on Saturday & Sunday will range from the mid-50s to near-60s, so don't let the sunshine fool you! Despite a ton of sunshine, you're still going to need a jacket during the day and a coat at night and in the morning. If you're going to be out and about this evening, a heavy jacket or coat will be a must. Temperatures will quickly tumble through the 30s this evening.
Everyone is doing what they can to stay warm during the winter — and insects are no exception. Jarrod Horton is the owner of Anti-Pest. He said his company has been getting a lot of phone calls about wasps, bees and lady beetles getting into their home. "When the insects are looking for a place to spend the winter they will look at your house," Horton said. Insects are most likely getting into homes by any crack or crevices, near the eaves of the house, around the chimney or loose boards.
One of the most iconic holiday symbols is the Christmas tree — but keeping a real tree looking fresh through the Christmas season is not an easy task. Having a fresh tree starts with a healthy one, said Mark Weaver, the owner of Weaver's Christmas Tree Farm in Shreveport. "A good rule of thumb is if you are going to buy a pre-cut tree go to foliage and pull on it. If the tree has dried out and is dying, you are going to have a handful of needles," said Weaver.
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".
