If you're one of those guys who is passively encouraging a single woman to waste her time on you when you're not romantically interested, then it's time for one of the most important breakups of your life. "Dude, we're just friends," said the defensive 20-something sitting across from me. "It sure doesn't look like a friendship to me or anyone else," I said. "So I enjoy female companionship," he said. "It doesn't mean we have to date each other." "Come on, man," I said.
Barrington, Illinois, is an idyllic place to raise a family. It’s a charming village northwest of Chicago with great schools and low crime, a place of roomy homes on 2-acre-or-larger lots. Barrington kids get to explore the wetlands and woods. Parents can take comfort in the town’s earnest motto, "a great place to live, work, and play." Nevertheless, I sold my home in Barrington at a huge loss late last year. It wasn’t so painful. In fact, I’m thrilled about it!
You know what the ugly political campaigns we're witnessing make me think of? Passive index funds. Let me explain. First, the politics. It's been an unprecedented political season with voters bitterly divided between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton - a contest pitting populist conservatism against establishment liberalism, the outsider against the insider.
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".
