If you’re tired of getting all tangled up with wired headphones while trying to listen to your music, a pair of wireless headphones could be the solution. Each of the headphones we’ve featured connect to your device simply and easily via Bluetooth – and some connect via NFC (near field communication), which will connect your headphones to the device just by holding them in close proximity, provided your device is NFC-enabled. The obvious benefit here is the complete lack of wires.
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, the question is: how best to share the love with your other half? A romantic city break? A poetically written love letter? Incorrect. The answer is: chocolate. And lots of it. Here, we've rounded up a feast-worthy collection of the good stuff ready to be rapidly scoffed. Most of the Valentine's offerings out there are heart-shaped, but if you can embrace the cliché, then your taste buds will surely thank you.
Depending on your general approach to life, you’ll receive the news of the office secret Santa in one of two ways: either, you’ll be delighted at the opportunity to show all your valued colleagues how much you appreciate them, via the medium of a gift, or you’ll be racked with terror, desperately thinking of what to buy Simon from accounts. You seem to remember he’s into chocolate and rugby… or was that Anna from HR? Remain calm.
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".
