How to Teach Your Children ShakespeareOver the summer, I took my daughter, my niece, and my toddler to Central Park to wait for tickets to see Shakespeare in the Park. As we waited along the path on our picnic blanket, representatives from Crown Publishers pushed a cart full of Ken Ludwig’s book, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, past all the people hoping to score tickets to that night’s performance of Love’s Labour’s Lost.
My family has taken many trips to New Orleans over the years, and my kids have grown to love the city as much as I do. While most people have an image of New Orleans as a place of debauchery, beads, and drunkenness, the city is so much more than Bourbon Street. If you are planning on taking a trip to New Orleans with the family, and I highly recommend you do, here are my top things to do with kids in New Orleans (in no particular order). There’s a lot to see at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.
Mondays are laundry day in my house. So is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. When you have a family of 6, an Everest size laundry pile overtakes the house. To say I abhor laundry is an understatement. If I skip a day of doing laundry, it can take me a whole day to finish the task. And not only is laundry time consuming and laborious, but is also annoying because of the various loads that need to be accomplished.
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".
