Tell us about the book that's currently on your bedside table. —In Kelly Jones’s Murder, Magic, and What We Wore, 16-year-old Annis Whitworth decides that the best way to solve her father’s mysterious death is to become a spy. But to Britain’s War Office, an upper-crust society girl traipsing around Regency-era London with no training and a personal vendetta is more of a liability than an asset.
Once Halloween has passed and the holidays are on the horizon, what’s to be done with all those pumpkins? Quite a bit, as it turns out. This fall, give pumpkins a second life with these 13 tips. 1. Roast it, hollow it out and use it as a soup tureen or a punch bowl for cider. With any roasting tips in this list, don’t try to peel the pumpkin pre-roast. It’s vastly easier to scrape out softened insides afterward than trying to peel firm rinds off of a curvaceous cultivar. 2.
Tell us about the book that's currently on your bedside table. —To paraphrase future poet laureate Taylor Swift, I knew The Epic Crush of Genie Lo was trouble when it came in. The front cover copy (”A demon invasion is no excuse for bad grades”) and back cover blurb (“She excels at standardized tests and annihilating the bad guys”) had me laughing aloud before reading a single word of F. C. Yee’s brilliant, hilarious young adult novel.
"So many books written about South Asian characters growing up in America wrestled with the conflicts between traditional parents and 'modern thinking' teenagers ... Finding a YA South Asian romance that celebrated positive parent-child relationships was like finding a unicorn." https://t.co/rOcpafrUDr
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".
