As I'm writing this, what I suspect is a cellulitis infection is making my left ankle hot, red and swollen. What's worse, it looks like it's getting ready to charge up my leg like Gen. Sherman through Georgia. No kidding. It's even getting a litte painful to walk. Luckily, I've encountered a couple of these sneaky, tissue-based bacterial baddies before, and I know the swift application of a mainstream antibiotic should stop it in its tracks.
Traveling lighter means traveling faster, farther—and hopefully getting more done. That's seems to be the slimmed down, New Year's resolution for many operator interface and human-machine interface (HMI) technologies and their users, who appear to have moved beyond simply displaying many data streams on all kinds of tablet PCs and smart phones, and are now prioritizing their devices and displays to give them the essential information they need for better decisions.
Weary, young parents trying to get babies to sleep sometimes find that taking them to the mall or other crowded places will flood the infants with so much sensory input that they'll inevitably nod off. Whew! I know it worked for me—meaning I got my then-baby daughters to sleep. I don't know what they did to me, but I think an early-1960s, pink-colored tranquilizer was involved.
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".
