Monday, January 24, was the most depressing day of 2011, according to a story by MSN Health & Fitness. A British researcher blames post-holiday blues and debt, unusually harsh winter weather, and failed New Year's Resolutions for our dejected spirits. Clean Plate Charlie suspects that the decline of our mental well being this year may be caused by the recent acts of little girls dressed in uniform - Girl Scouts.
(WLFI Photo) WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Indiana Veterans’ Home has a new permanent resident and it weighs several tons. American Legion Post 368 in Van Buren, Indiana, donated an M60 Patton battle tank. It traveled 90 miles from northeast Indiana Tuesday to its new home in Tippecanoe County. The Cold-war era tank rolled in on the back of a semi and now lies on a concrete slab built for it at the Veterans’ Home.
The summer of 2013 was a franchise changer for the Ottawa Senators, but it would take four years and a surprise run to the Eastern Conference final for most hockey watchers to realize just how transformative it was. That July the Senators acquired winger Bobby Ryan from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen and a first-round pick in the 2014 NHL draft which turned into forward Nick Ritchie.
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".
