I’m proud to be working with Warner Bros. Pictures on this post and giveaway for the new LEGO NINJAGO movie, in theaters September 22. The LEGO movies are so clever. Watching the preview for this one, I expect more of the same and can’t wait for the laughs and inspiration that I know my kids and I will enjoy. Help get your kids excited about the movie or extend the fun. Visit ColoringBook.LEGONINJAGOMovie. com to download The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Super Awesome Digital Activity Book.
HOUGHTON – The Michigan Pipeline Safety Advisory Board voted unanimously Monday to recommend Michigan Technological University lead a risk analysis of the 63-year old Enbridge Line 5 pipelines that runs beneath the Straits of Mackinac and would pose a significant environmental risk to the Great Lakes if they were to rupture, scientific studies have shown.
Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for the review copy of the book and sponsoring this giveaway. When my kids were younger, they were good readers, and it was often hard to find a book that was at their reading level — as their teachers encouraged — that wasn’t so far above them in content that it didn’t click with them. I did a lot of reading, because I was involved in book blogging and specifically kidlit book blogging, but also because I wanted to be able to put great books in their hands.
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".
