It happened again this morning. My 2-year-old, Annie, had just put on her Belle dress and was twirling in the living room. “Daddy, watch me!”I told her “Ok,” and watched for a little bit. But soon, I looked down at my phone, eager to begin tackling the work day. There was some email, some text, or some story that I thought I needed to get a jump on. And that’s when Annie stepped up. “No, no, no, Daddy. I take your phone.” She proceeded to grab it out of my hands and walk off.
Chip and Joanna Gaines have come under fire for their faith in the last year, but now they’re facing a different kind of attack. Joanna took to Facebook to explain the problem and even ask for help. The message is the result of a rumor circulating that the “Fixer Upper” star is quitting the show to focus her efforts on a makeup line. That’s false, she says. “There have been rumors floating around about me leaving the show to start a skincare/makeup line,” Joanna began.
Missy and Jase Robertson have been open about their daughter Mia’s journey with cleft lip and palate. It was even featured on an episode of “Ducky Dynasty.” This week, that journey involved Missy and Mia taking a road trip from West Monroe, Louisiana, to a Dallas, Texas, doctor for a checkup. And it led to a random act of kindness and a challenge to Christians from Missy.
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".
