I've always dreamt of what my husband would be like. Sometimes, I get butterflies when I think about the kind way he treats me and the subtle ways he shows his love to me. (I suppose that makes me a hopeless romantic, but I'm totally OK with having that title.) Since they say love is in the stars, I've often turned to astrology to help me sort out of my life. And if turns out, if you believe in the stars, it's easy to find out the kind of husband your partner will be be based on his zodiac sign.
Kickboxing is a sport that I've always been a little scared to try. I'm not quite sure if it's because the boxing bags seem intimidating or if I just have fear of getting injured, but I regularly pass on the activity when invited to participate with my friends. No longer wanting to miss out on the fun, I decided to learn how to avoid the beginner mistakes everyone makes in kickboxing so I can actually join my friends.
As a writer and Netflix marathoner, I spend a lot of time in front of screens. Though I know it's not the best thing to do, its unfortunately become a societal norm and has a large number of side effects associated with it. From weight gain to vision damage, there are so many reasons why I'm trying to cut back on my screen time every day.
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".
