Ready or not, it's time for fall! With the changing leaves and back-to-school season comes an exciting array of new gadgets. We've done our homework to get you the best fall finds early this season. This waffle maker was a hit with my expert-chef mom, who is super picky about kitchen gadgets. What impressed her was the unique, volcano-like top spout, which allows you to place the perfect amount of batter right into the machine. This prevents the batter from spilling over and making a mess.
With more than 323 million people in the United States and a solar eclipse available for everyone to view – the first thing that is on everyone’s mind: Where do I get the glasses? Well, pro tip: There are only a five NASA and aas.org approved vendors meeting international safety requirements – I recently chatted with Andrew Lunt of Lunt Solar Systems on what the ramp-up to the event has been like. Has this been a sales lifetime high? The eclipse is a “Black Swan” event.
This is the kind of blackout that is science approved! I’ve put together some of my favorite must have gadgets to watch the solar eclipse and I recommend getting them early, as they are already starting to sell out fast! Don’t wait till the last minute to get your hands on these special sunglasses, as they are already forecast to sell out! Looking at the sun for just seconds can cause a lifetime of permanent irreversible damage, so approved and accredited glasses are a MUST!
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".
