Fathers’ Day celebration on Sunday came with pain for Adele. She had woken up early, prepared Jay’s favourite meal and went to wake him up so they could attend the 8am church service. Jay was livid. She had woken him up from his relaxing sleep, he had thundered. Adele’s apologies fell on deaf ears. Not even her Fathers’ Day good wish could assuage his anger. They were not acknowledged. She went back to her room dejected. At a point, she had to pep herself up.
Adele would rather not get entangled in another woman’s marital issue. She had enough on her hands already. Moreover, she didn’t feel she was the right person to counsel Ken and Tracy on this matter. Her marriage was almost caving in on her and someone was approaching her to help sort out his. She smiled. It occurred to her that beneath the smiles plastered on many people’s faces were tears, anguish and pain.
Jay searched the bed cautiously at first, avoiding his wife. Then, he became impatient and his hand hit her. Adele stirred, opened her eyes and sat up immediately she saw him looming over her. “What…what do you want,” she asked him. Jay said nothing, but seized the opportunity to drag the duvet off her. The phone slipped off the bed to the floor at Adele’s side. She saw it but he didn’t. “Where’s your phone? Where did you hide it? I want to use it,” he said impatiently. “My phone? You want to use my phone?
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".
