Any-hoo, below are a few other ideas I’m considering. Feel free to give me your opinions. 1. Give birth to an adorable child who makes weird, meme-worthy faces, like Skeptical Baby. The problem is, Baby Girl is all grown up and that weird little dimple at the very front of her bald head is gone. Or covered with the hair that finally grew. Either way, her meme stage was past even before “meme” was a word.
As a child, Lonnie Johnson had few store-bought toys. He was born in Mobile in 1949 and his parents worked hard to afford food, shelter and clothing for their six children. But Lonnie, the third born, was a curious child taught by his grandfather to "tinker," according to an article in The Washington Post. He would overcome poverty and the disadvantages he faced during segregation to obtain an engineering degree at the famed Tuskegee Institute and become a NASA engineer.
On a recent July day, Pleasant Gap Cemetery was covered with weeds, bugs and a smothering blanket of humidity. The graves, about 390 in all, lay atop a small foothill of Frog Mountain in a tiny Cherokee County community also called Pleasant Gap. Somewhere among the graves is the burial site of one of the most beloved figures in local lore: Former slave Uncle Jerry Aiken (sometimes written "Akins"), who reportedly lived to be 136 years old.
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".
