Recently, I received a phone call from a woman whose world was suddenly turned upside down. “Kathleen, this is Susie,” she said. “I need your help.” kAm“$FD:6[ :D 6G6CJE9:?8 ~zn” x 2D<65] “}@[ q:== :D 5625] w6 H2D EC2G6=:?8[ 2?5 x C646:G65 2 A9@?6 42== E92E 96 4@==2AD65 2?5 96 :D 8@?6]”k^Am kAm“}@P” x C6DA@?565 H:E9 2 =@F5 G@:46] x 5:5 ? @E H2?E 2?J@?6 E@ 6IA6C:6?46 E96 A2:? x 925 6IA6C:6?465 2D 2 H:5@H]k^Am kAm$:?46 E92E 52J H96?
To complicate things, I was not real thrilled about where we would be spending Christmas because, quite frankly, there were just difficult people we were going to be around that particular holiday. I remembered the last Christmas we went up north, my little girl was 4 years old, all decked out in her Christmas attire with her big red bow. She was absolutely adorable and had such a sweet spirit.
Christmas and the holidays are a time many families gather together for fun and to celebrate. However, for many, the holiday season may be difficult. The holidays only remind them of what is NOT in their lives anymore. Grief often shows up unexpectedly during this season, triggering the pain that might have remained hidden the rest of the year. kAm%96 8@@5 ?6HD :D v@5 D6?E y6DFD E@ 36 H:E9 FD :? @FC A2:?] x DA62< 7C@> 6IA6C:6?46…E96 E9:?8D x 92G6 =62C?65 7C@> H2=<:?8 E9C@F89 8C:67 92G6 366?
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".
