Oh, we’ll consider him all right, buster. We’ll consider him for an entire week in April. April 15-22, to be exact: Squirrel Week VIII. So, consider this a heads-up. Mark your calendars now to cancel the paper that week if you hate squirrels, or to cancel all appointments if you love them. I find there is no middle ground. As that Roman numeral implies, this will be my eighth annual exploration of all things Sciuridae. And as always, I can use your help.
On March 3, 1913, the day before Woodrow Wilson’s inaugural parade, a pair of women mounted two horses near the U.S. Capitol. Jane Burleson was astride a dark horse, Inez Milholland atop a white one. They were about to lead a procession of 5,000 supporters of women’s suffrage. If the route was straightforward — 15 blocks up Pennsylvania Avenue — the day would not be.
Meredith Wells always thought that someday she would bring her grandchildren to Old Glory, a bar on M Street NW in Georgetown. She’d quiet the children and point to a brass plaque on the wall, just inside the door, engraved with her name and “2010,” the year she completed her year-long quest to do a shot of every different bourbon in the place.
I'm really enjoying UK comedy series "Toast of London." @porksmith is brilliant on it. Apparently it's not everyone's cup of tea (1.5 stars on @netflix!) but those haterz (like Steven Toast) have no sense of humor. YES!!!
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".
