I don’t think it’s a surprise that our kids are obsessed right now with mermaid blankets, mermaid Vans, and mermaid pillows — and that we adults are fully giving into the obsession. In a world gone somewhat mad, a little fairy magic can certain brighten a day. So why not brightening your holiday? And with that, I present to you: Mermaid Christmas stockings!

Target rolled exclusive weekend deals every weekend in November and December and as a dedicated Tarzhay shopper, I am all about this! Especially since today’s deal is a whole 25% off toys at Target. What better way to say, “attention holiday shoppers: Please stay home with your family on Black Friday!”The best part is that this 25% off deal is both in-store (so you can grab a Starbucks while you’re there) and online at target.com (so you can grab your kids and cuddle up in front of a movie).
I’m not going to pull punches here; like a lot of parents, I’m concerned about so many American kids growing up in an age where the normalization of a lot of really awful stuff — hatred, bigotry, misogyny, xenophobia, mass shootings — is part of their everyday understanding of our country. My mom often describes a lifetime of commitment to social justice and public service inspired by the influence of Bobby and John F. Kennedy.
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".
