In the spring we set our clocks ahead one hour. We spring forward. Daylight Saving Time begins. This upcoming weekend? We’re going to set those clocks back an hour. Daylight Saving Time comes to an end. So what’s the deal with all of this clock back-and-forward stuff? Well, the idea is nothing new. George Hudson proposed the idea back in 1895. The German Empire and Austria/Hungary implemented it in April 1916. Many countries have used it, especially since the energy crisis of the 1970s.
Cold air could support some wet flakes mixed in with rain overnight into early Saturday morning. The mix is expected to be east of Interstate 71 by 8 a.m. and far to the east by noon. Ground temps are very warm and the air will remain warmer than freezing -- the worst to expect is wet roads. Sunday morning there could be a few light flakes in the cold air behind the front.
The highly anticipated solar eclipse is quickly approaching, and wearing sunglasses for the view will not cut it. On Monday, August 21, the Tri-State will experience a partial eclipse, when approximately 91% of the sun will be covered by the moon. As a result, the American Astronomical Society has released a list of vendors of solar filters and viewers to promote safe viewership of the natural phenomenon.
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".
