Partly to lure our youngest human family member into the store since it represented another errand on our shopping trip, we pointed to the cats up for adoption as an incentive to go in. It turned into a very effective lure for us to visit with the cutest, smallest, cross-eyed kitty of the bunch. The name Willie confused us at first as to whether it was a boy or girl (we don’t believe in examining animals’ privates and instead like to ask about the gender).
Today, we had the best time yet at the Denver Art Museum of any visit with our littler one. See a blog about our last visit here. Something was different on this visit. Instead of having just a few kid-oriented areas, much of the museum seemed devoted to kid-targeted areas. From the start of entering the new building, you could get a backpack targeted to your kid’s age with tons of stuff in it that was linked to the exhibits.
Setting aside a day to celebrate something seems somehow to undermine this philosophy of constantly seeking to give proper respect to everyone we encounter. If my wife, for instance, tells our son to do something on Father’s Day because I as a dad ask him to do it today, that shouldn’t really be a reason. We should respect each other and listen to each other for absolutely no reason besides it’s what we should do. Of course, I’m speaking as an adult, not as someone parenting a child.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
