For reasons that are still not fully understood, Steve Young bit off the head of a fish on live TV last night. The former '49ers quarterback and ESPN analyst was on live TV for the Seahawks vs. Falcons pregame show at the Pike Place Market in Seattle when a Seahawks fan grabbed a fish yelling, "Iâ€™m a Seahawk! I eat Falcons for breakfast!" He then did the hygienically unthinkable and bit off the head of the fish.
Lindsey Stirling's semi-final-worthy performance on Dancing with the Stars last night was golden, in more ways than one. Olympic gold medalist, figure skater, and season 6 Dancing with the Stars champion Kristi Yamaguchi joined her former dance partner Mark Ballas and Stirling for their performance on last night's episode.
Before I could finish the first line of the opening hymn in Relief Society, my phone buzzed with a news notification. Typically, I don't check my phone during Church. In fact, I try to look at my phone as little as possible on Sundays. But before I could glance away, I saw the headline: "20 Killed in Church Attack." Twenty people dead? How? Where? Why? Still mumbling the opening hymn, I search "23 Killed in Church." As the search results popped up, my heart broke.
Oh and also? You're doing great. You're doing a great job raising your kid and showing love to the people who matter and trying to make beautiful stuff and fanning a little hopeful flame in a dark world. Holidays can be lonely and weird. You're great.
I am thankful for books, toy schnauzers, my job, Sephora, petite cats, Sudafed, fat cats, every cheese, my sisters, Portugal, my brothers, sparkling wine, my friends, other people's babies, my fiancé, love given and love returned. And more cheese.
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".
