The last time I saw a full solar eclipse as a kid was when I was in Ms. Campbell’s 6th grade class at Reynolds Elementary School in Toledo, OH. Man, I’m old. It was the absolute coolest thing ever to see a sunny day turn pitch black as the moon crossed the sun. Or however that happens. While I’m not completely sure how or where we’ll watch the eclipse, I know many of you have been asking about where to buy solar eclipse glasses. At this point, you can’t.
It’s only my second visit to Ojai, CA and it seems like it’s a beautiful place to live. Each time I have come it’s to pay a visit to my husband’s high school, The Thacher School. Both times we stayed at the Blue Iguana Inn which is a really nice property complete with quaint rooms and suites, pool, hot tub, and free breakfast. A must for my husband. They had some of the best little chocolate mini muffins but the milk wasn’t that great. The kids didn’t like it but the lovely staff made up for it.
I didn’t grow up wealthy, have designer clothing, or ride in the fanciest of cars. We had what we needed and my parents made sure of that. My earliest memory of designer clothing was when a girl in my 4th grade class wore Gloria Vanderbilt jeans EVERYDAY to school and we all swooned over them. My parents did a great job at making sure we had great childhood memories.
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".
