On a Sunday evening in early November, my friends and I sat in my family room sprawled on the couch. A largely ignored NFL game lit up the television screen as we joked and laughed. At one point, I opened my mouth to begin to tell a story and one of my friends interrupted me, “Josh, I just have t...
I wasn’t a very good runner this summer (in part because I was on a 13,000-mile road trip), but plan to buckle down on my training next week, and one way I’ll do that is to run with a group. According to Running USA’s 2017 National Runner Survey, this is a popular thing. They found that six in 10 runners are part of a group, one in three are involved in a local running club or social group and one in 10 are part of a virtual running club or challenge group.
Many consider bees a nuisance to outdoor summer activity, but wasps, as shown above, are actually the more common stingers. Wasps don’t need a lot of provocation to sting and are especially sensitive to vibrations, so even mowing your lawn near a nest can lead to an attack. If you see a nest, or know where one is, avoid it if possible, or call a professional to have it removed.
I read everything on my iPad. Renting my textbooks as e-books was cheaper than renting hard copies or buying them used. Plus, I didn’t have to deal with the inconvenience of waiting for books to come in or struggling to sell them after the semester ended. In five minutes you can have a complete textbook and when the class ends, it leaves your possession automatically.
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".
