As we all know, Thanksgiving is a holiday where we celebrate family. To many, their pet is the only family they have. Whether it’s a senior citizen whose family is thousands of miles away and cannot come see them, or a college student who doesn’t have enough cash to get a ticket on the bus, or a person who just lost a spouse who is now an empty nester, many individuals are home alone during the holiday season … unless they have a pet of course.
A 1-year-old Chihuahua mix was found wandering the streets of Phoenix, mostly by a stroke of luck — the woman who found the pup was driving and swerved as to not hit the small pooch standing in the middle of the street. Opening the door, the woman jumped out to see if the small dog was OK. As she approached, the little dog started wagging her tail, then ran over to her rescuer.
This is the story of a cat named Stinker and the people who never gave up on him. Stinker’s story began when he and another kitten were abandoned on the 210 Freeway. Marta Curry was driving along when she saw the bundles of fur on the side of the road. Pulling over to see if she could help, one of the kittens ran, but Stinker seemed to know he was being rescued and allowed her to grab him. Stinker got his name because he was pretty dirty and “stinky” when Marta took him home.
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".
