I’m 69 years old, twice divorced and still dreaming of the right man. I’m also building a business, but the only attention I’ve attracted is from a man on LinkedIn. His profile says he’s Greek, in the oil business and affiliated with the Saudi Council of Engineers. Flattered, I responded. We’ve shared 290 texts since November 1. His first questions were whether I live alone, how big is my house, if I own or rent. The third day, he asked if I want to marry again.
Here’s what happened when a left-liberal sister and her Trump-supporting brother swapped media inputs This article was published on Want to try a media swap? 1. Begin by agreeing on the terms. Two weeks to two months is a viable timeframe. 2. Text or email a list of your trusted go-to media sources to each other. 3. Keep notes about your experience in a journal or audio file. Identify the thoughts and feelings that arise in you in response to what you’re consuming.
I work in a very nice restaurant, a place where people celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. I’m always surprised that so many people seem unhappy with the person they’re dating or married to. I mean, they’re dressed up and eating incredible food, but they’re bickering or uptight or flat-out arguing. Or they’re not talking to each other at all. Are they with the wrong person? Would it be different if they were with their soul mate?
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".
