Created by wildlife rehabilitator, Christy Hargrove, National Squirrel Appreciation Day takes place on January 21st (yesterday) of each year. There’s no specific celebration, so it’s up to the individual what they want to do–perhaps leaving out some extra food for squirrels, perhaps learning some squirrel facts that you didn’t know, or maybe, just maybe, launching a gallery full of squirrel photos and enjoying their bushy tailed goodness. I’ve got you covered on that last one.
This Saturday is Penguin Awareness Day! Since you’re probably already aware that penguins exist, dive into the chilly waters of penguin-related facts, and learn something new about these aquatic, flightless birds. Are they even birds? Are you absolutely positive? I mean, if a tomato is a fruit, then isn’t it possible penguins are considered fish? Only one way to know for sure!
I’ve got the flu, so everyone gets kittens today. Since we’re right in the midst of flu season, I’m sure some of you are dealing with the same thing. I can’t promise this gallery will shorten the length of your symptoms, but it might momentarily make you feel a little better. Click here to see “The Mighty Mouse-Deer” and check back every weekday for a new Daily Cute! If you would like to submit cute photos which you took, please send them to [email protected]gmail.com.
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".
