It seems like you can’t look on your smart phone without seeing the latest high-powered man behaving badly.Â The list includes Hollywood big shots, politicians, comedians, journalists, researchers, shit – there’s even an article about sexual harassment in Antarctica!Â Is no continent safe from horny men with power issues?
OMG!Â It’s almost Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years and I’m totally unprepared!Â All the checklists I’ve read in various women’s magazines have the assumption that I’m already somewhat organized.Â Not so.Â Here is my…. Hope that nifty little checklist helps!Â What are you doing to get ready for the holidays? Lisa Traugott is a Momâ€™s Choice Award winning writer, fitness blogger, wife and mom of two. Her book, â€œSheâ€™s Losing It!â€? is available at Amazon.com (and has a 5-star review rating!)
If you are self-employed (like me) or otherwise don’t have access to health insurance through your job, you can sign up for it through the Affordable Care Act (aka – ACA/Â Obamacare). The current Trump administration doesn’t like the program and as such has cut the funding to notify people about it by 90%.Â So consider this post my public service announcement.Â Also, please share this info if you know someone needs coverage.
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".
