Thinking of sending friends and family some Colorado food as a gift? Thrillist put together a list containing the best foods from all 50 states that ships nationwide. Colorado’s may surprise you. It did me. Recently, the gang at Thrillist published their list of the ‘Best Food From Every State That Ships Nationwide.’ Their pick for Hawaii, for example, is a place that will ship you their famous malasadas (Portuguese donuts) I’ve never even HEARD of malasadas!
NightLights has become a Christmas tradition in Fort Collins. I know it is for our family and it's not just because I have been the host for the past couple of years. The 2017 annual NightLights tree lighting ceremony is Friday, December 1st from 6-7pm at First Presbyterian Church in Fort Collins.
The Annual Greeley Lights The Night Parade is Saturday, November 25 at 5:30 pm in Downtown Greeley . It runs north on 9th Avenue from 15th Street to 7th Street. After the parade, stay at Lincoln Park for the lighting ceremony, tasty holiday goodies, and visits with Santa! Some entries include horses, bands, dance teams, and classic cars and every entry is lighted. I will be announcing the parade in front of the Rio at the corner of 9th and 9th in Downtown Greeley.
To test your relationship, build some furniture together (say, from @IKEAUSA)! Psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula says assembling a large bookcase, for example, tests a couple’s communication & teamwork skills. You need to be on the same page – literally – to get it right! #IFYL
The worst font for résumés? @Business says Times New Roman, because it’s the default on many word programs, so it signals “lazy” to others. The best font? Helvetica (Twitter’s default.) Typography experts say it’s safe, but feels “professional, lighthearted & honest.” #IFYL
Good to know today: A study says we look our oldest at 3:30pm on Wednesdays. That’s generally when work stress peaks during the week, and effects of previous weekend’s festivities finally catch up to us. #IFYL
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".
