It’s been four days since I’ve eaten any sugar. Or grains. Or dairy products. There’s a dull ache at the back of my head. I feel a little fuzzy, as if I skipped my morning coffee, which I didn’t. I did, however, skip the cream and sugar. And, if I’m honest, I’m feeling a little crabby with people today. Especially if they are eating pizza or king cake. Or cookies. This is the third year in a row that I’ve started the new year with some sort of elimination diet.
Rookie Alvin Kamara has given fans lots of reasons to love him this season. Since coming to New Orleans, he has dazzled with explosive runs, kick returns and an uncanny ability to bounce of of tacklers and keep his feet. Kamara, a favorite to win NFL Offensive Player of the Year, finished the regular season with 728 rushing yards, 826 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns, including a 106-yard kickoff return in Week 17.
Each day in our community, someone is making a decision that takes their life in a new and sometimes unknown direction. On Jan. 16, five everyday people will get on stage and tell true, first-person stories about decisions that changed their lives. None of the six storytellers are professionals; they are our friends and neighbors. You'll hear tales that explore what happens when we reach an unexpected turn in our road.
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".
