The following is a sponsored post in partnership with HanesWith dreary December weather and frightful, frigid temperatures, my favorite stocking stuffers are ones that create comfort and warmth, plus spark leisure time with my family. It’s now Christmas “crunch time.” Less than a week until the big holiday, and you’ve probably already figured out the main, big ticket items for your friends and family. But what about your stocking stuffers?
I tried my hand at rolling sushi last year, and I have such a better appreciation for the culinary technique and fresh ingredients that go into creating great sushi. Instead of trying to roll your own sushi rolls, roll on over to P.F. Chang’s for a complimentary one! For the second year in a row, P.F. Chang’s is giving away their world-famous, hand-rolled California Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll for one day only, Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017.
In a heartbeat, your life can change. But how often do you really think about your heartbeat, and the impact that heart health has within our community? My grandmother had a debilitating stroke when she was in her 70’s. She lost function of the right side of her body and it took a long time to regain use of it. She had to relearn to write and adjust to feeding herself with her left hand. She needed more care and dealt with painful effects from the stroke for the remaining 15 years of her life.
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".
