Where else can you see Thoroughly Modern Millie, Seussical the Musical, and You Can’t Beat the House in one weekend right in your own backyard? And…at affordable prices? It’s no secret that Valley Stream is buzzing with extremely talented kids. I still talk about the kids at Central who I saw perform years ago! This weekend, all three high schools are putting on a few productions you may have heard of beginning Friday, November 17th.
Whether you’re shopping for Christmas pjs for the family to wear on Christmas morning or for your annual family photo, you have to have them. This is one of the most difficult things to find for everyone in the family. (*post contains affiliate links.) I do remember dressing the kids in matching pjs a few years ago, I’ve never had the entire family match. Ever. But given that all of the grandparents will be here for the holidays, it may be time to start a new tradition.
I have held my tongue long enough. I simply cannot take it anymore. Something had to be said and it looks like I’m the one who has to say it. Stop looking for babysitters on Facebook. Just stop. It’s not safe ESPECIALLY when you post your search in every local Facebook group online. I know you’re doing it because I see you. Yes, these groups are supposed to be closed, private or secret but the truth is everybody ain’t legit.
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".
