Remember the big scare once BPA was discovered in our water bottles? BPA — the estrogen disrupting chemical — was ubiquitous in many common plastics that consumers interact with every day. Now, an "old school" danger has come back to the water bottle market: Lead. The new hotness in water bottle trends has been insulated stainless steel bottles that keep drinks hotter and colder for much longer periods of time. But they too now have their own "buyer beware" issue to face.
If you or your kids have the flu, you’re not alone: the 2018 flu season has turned out not only to be one of the worst in recent decades, tragically, it’s been deadly, too. At least 2,000 people have died from the flu this season—37 of them children.
So, if you’re like one of over 10 million people who bought the Nintendo Switch when it debuted last year, you’re in for a treat of epic proportions—and if you haven’t yet bought the Switch, you might want to rethink that decision. On Wednesday, the Japanese video game giant announced its latest update for the Switch: the Nintendo Labo—and it looks freakin’ incredible. What is the Nintendo Labo? Honestly, the best way to think of this new toy experience is what isn’t the Nintendo Labo.
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".
