Want a kid with a healthy dose of grit and resilience? You’d better start early. Like, really early. “You start building resilience on the way home from the hospital after delivery,” says Michael J. Bradley, PhD, a psychologist and author based in Philadelphia, PA. “It’s a lifelong parenting thing.
When it comes to selling Girl Scout cookies, 11-year-old Diana Zorek has the winning recipe. The Upper West Side tween sold 2,537 boxes this year, earning her the title of top cookie-seller for the Girl Scouts of Greater New York. With her dad Michael in tow, Diana pounded the pavement, approaching people as they entered H&H Bagels and waited on long lines at Times Square. Then she tapped into a group of people she knew could never turn down a good cookie.
More New Yorkers are discovering what their Rockaway neighbors have known all along: eating, playing and working in the beachfront community is a pretty good way to live. The popular peninsula was on the way to regaining its former status as a top city resort destination when it was ravaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012. Homes were lost to fire and floods and swaths of the beloved boardwalk were torn from their foundations. But Rockaway’s fighting spirit prevailed.
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".
