I’m crossing my fingers that I’m not jinxing myself. But Jace hasn’t bitten anyone in two weeks! Whoohoo! I can’t tell you how big of a relief this is. I no longer have to hover over him 24/7 in case his Dracula tendencies came out on the playground. Honestly, I’m not sure what it was that worked. But here’s what we did, and hopefully it’ll help you. Every night we would read “Teeth Are Not For Biting.” When he did bite someone, we didn’t yell or hit.
I have gone back and forth on whether or not I wanted to share this. I’ve written it out a million times in my head, but now I’m finally putting it to paper (or keyboard). I’ve been afraid to share it because the last thing I want is for you to feel sorry for me. I’m fine. We’re fine. I’m writing this out now for two reasons. 1. Writing is my form of therapy. 2. Hearing other people stories, especially my friends, helped me realize I’m not alone.
Ok Duke, you win. Prettiest campus in America. Ok, maybe tied with University of Virginia. That was my first time visiting, and I was blown away my how beautiful their campus is. It was a perfect time to go. It was fall, 70 degrees, and the leaves were just starting to change. I love how the stadium is tucked away in the middle of campus. I got to see Cameron Indoor Stadium for the first time in person as well. It’s even more “cathedral-esque” than it seems on tv. For dinner we went to downtown Durham.
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".
