In about a third of U.S. couples, women bring in half or more of the earnings, but 71 percent of adults say it is important for a man to be able to support a family financially in order to be a good husband or partner, according to a new Pew Research poll. By comparison, only 32 percent said it’s important for a woman to support a family in order to be a good wife or partner. Men are especially likely to place a greater emphasis on their role as financial providers.
Recent reports that the Federal Emergency Management Agency uses a “Waffle House Index” to measure a storm’s severity were no surprise to any of the employees at the tiny Waffle House on U.S. 13 in Dover. It turns out every employee knows the company ethic is keep serving customers no matter what, and every restaurant has a storm playbook with protocols for how to keep operating if the electricity and running water go out.
Terry White has flipped nearly 150 Delaware houses since 2004. He aims for about $25,000 profit per property, but he’s made anywhere from $22,000 to $80,000. White said flipping is not as easy as it looks on HGTV, especially since “everybody and his brother” has jumped into the market. House flipping is back in Delaware, fueled by a shortage of starter homes and plenty of foreign and domestic capital searching for higher returns.
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".
