Vaccinating your baby is one of the most important decisions you’ll face as a new parent, whether you choose to do it or not. If you decide not to, then you might spend a lot of time worrying about your kiddo being around lots of people and what air borne diseases they might contract, and if you decide to go ahead with vaccines you have to decide whether you want to follow the CDC guidelines or go with an alternative schedule.
During the first year, your baby will have six routine well visits alone, not taking into account any visits for vaccines or illness. Whether you’re a new mamí or a seasoned one choosing a pediatrician for your little one can be a pretty overwhelming experience, surrounded by a million questions. Do you want a private practice that caters to children only or do you want a family practice that can serve all members of your family?
It feels like a lifetime has passed since I turned 30 last summer. I now have a laughing, loving, drooling bundle of joy that I adore more than I could have ever imagined. My dream job turned out to be less than a dream, and my company turned out to have less than interest in the community I was representing than expected. I have a new apartment in a new city and a new lease on life, plus as of today, I’m a whole year older. Geez that’s a lot of change right?
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".
