It's the crunchiest holiday feast ever. Pringles, a division of Kellogg’s that specializes in snack food, is currently testing a newfangled take on the holiday feast with its Thanksgiving Dinner kit. The fleet of chips in eight different flavors are the bird day usual suspects: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, creamed corn, green bean casserole, mac & cheese and pumpkin pie. It all comes tucked inside a package made to look like a TV dinner.
They're man's best friend - for the ages. Owning a pooch can reduce the risk death by a third, according to a new Swedish study. It adds adds to mounting evidence about the benefits of living with a canine companion. Swedish scientists used national data on health, hospital visits and dog ownership from 2001, the year when registering dogs became mandatory. Researchers began by looking at 3.4 million Swedes aged 40 to 80, who in 2001, had no history of heart disease.
Another year, another stink over Starbucks holiday cups. This time the controversy comes from the festive containers’ “gay agenda.”The brew-ha-ha stems from the fact that the cup might show two clasped same-sex hands. The video promoting the coffee giant’s holiday cups features characters of various ages, races, genders and sexualities.
The gender of the clasped hands on the cups is ambiguous. Two women? Two slender-fingered men? Waldo and She-Ra, what with the striped sweater and the wrist cuff? Who knows. And yet, another Starbucks cups stink. https://t.co/BeVLOxGkw9
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".
