This past week, I was unable to pick up my son from hockey camp, which meant missing his big game. Womp, womp. But, thanks to a cool Facebook Live feature you might not know about, my fiancé was able to film the whole thing, and not have it publicized to anyone else but me. And I got to watch it Live as it happened, almost like I was there in person! Related: How to use the new Facebook Story feature.
With the Star Wars lands hitting Disney Parks late next year (or early 2019), we probably shouldn’t be surprised that they’re adding a Star Wars hotel to the mix too. And while we don’t have many details, we have to say it sounds (and looks) a little bit like Westworld. Hold the cowboys and bar maids.
I’ve been in the mood for a new iPhone case, which is how I discovered these fun geode cases at Society 6. While they’re not real geodes (I know, stating the obvious here), they really do look like the real thing. Such a bright, colorful way to keep your iPhone safe, all summer long, and right now, they’re 20% off plus free shipping. Whoo! Here are just a few of my favorites from the artist TheQuarry. You can also search around the site for other geode cases from other designers.
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".
