HE MUST CLIMB THE LADDERI dreamed I was lying on a bed covered in flowing white sheets. The mattress was high in the air atop a mountain of mattresses, formed like a white wedding cake reaching into the sky. I was lying above Piazza San Marco in Venice. Peering out over the water, I noticed gulls floating above. To my left, was the clock tower, and beyond my feet, the grand Basilica.
I dreamed that I was inspired to paint a huge mural. There were many details. I painted and painted and it was looking pretty good, but at one point, I heard the mural whispering to me, so I leaned in closer and then it ate me. What could this possibly mean? Painting a mural reveals a retrospective wish to assess your life and its accompanying accomplishments. The details of color, shape and form are given in an attempt to evaluate the past and examine where you are headed.
HE NEEDS TO CLOSE THE DOOR ON THE PASTIn reality, my nephew (my sister’s only child) is going off to college this September. He recently dreamed he walked into a room of our deceased relatives, my brothers, my parents, but also myself, my partner, and my nephew’s dad (divorced from my sister, but active in his life). There was a coffin in front of the room. When my nephew stepped up to the podium to say a few words, it was my sister (his mom) in the coffin. What does this mean?
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".
