Rodney Hogg: Handshake. Men shouldn’t hug men on greetings and I don’t know how to headbutt. I thought a boy from Thornbury would have been skilled in the finer details of a Liverpool kiss? I could have done with it when Mrs Bird tried to whack me with her umbrella, when I filled in her son with a bouncer in the under-13s at Hayes Park against Fairfield Methodists ...She never did have a sense of fun. What did you make of the headbutt incident? I just wish David Warner would button it.
Searching for an apartment has always annoyed me. And having lived in more than a few apartments, that’s a lot of annoyance. Suffice it to say the stereotypes are true and you all know it. In recent years, apartment building has been gangbusters in Dallas. Everyone wonders if there’s a bubble coming in the high rents asked by these newer buildings. I’d call it more effervescence than the giddiness of popping bubble wrap.
Weir’s Furniture has been a fixture about town for 70 years. Their Knox store has sat witness to the area’s ups and downs. I think it’s safe to say Knox is on the up and up and Weir’s wants to remain an integral part of the transformation (new residents need furniture). You may recall back in July, I reported on Restoration Hardware’s plans to transform their piddly one story. Weir’s wants in on that action.
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".
