So now that we are full swing into “Local Summer” and the kids are all back to school, planning for fall and Halloween can officially get started! Costumes, decorations, party planning and then there is the CANDY! We all can remember mid-summer seeing Halloween candy already stocked on the shelves of local stores. I shudder at the thought of my son getting stale candy on Halloween night! But, there is one candy that will be hitting the shelves soon that you will know is fresh!
With all the craziness going on in the world right now let’s take our thoughts and do something fun! I was recently asked about some fun facts that people would not know about me just by looking at me. It got me thinking. Wow, there are so many things people do not know about each other until they fill out a random quiz on Facebook. So I racked my brain and instantly came across 10 fun facts and I am going to share them with you to maybe lighten your mood. I played high school football.
So tonight’s Powerball Jackpot is estimated to be about $700 Million! It only takes 1 ticket to win, so my question is: do you join an office pool or just stay solo and buy your own? The odds of winning according to www.njlottery.com areÂ 1 in 292,201,338. So where are we all in this numbers game? The odds of winning are there. Now, how many chances do you have to win? The bigger question, are you willing to share your winnings with 30 coworkers?
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".
