The winner of the Golden Laurel, Denmark’s most prestigious literary prize, Sara Blaedel writes crime fiction that will keep you guessing – and keep you up at night. Her bestselling books about homicide detective Louise Rick (The Forgotten Girls, The Killing Forest, The Lost Woman) are dark, psychologically gripping and often terrifying. So she’s not exactly the likely choice to suggest the best places in Denmark to experience hygge, the Danish philosophy of coziness.
As many of you know from my mom’s very active Facebook, I (Alex) just graduated from my MBA program and have a few months until I rejoin the real world – work starts July 31. To make the most of my time off, Julie and I decided to take a trip. Given that she is still part of the real world and has a job with limited vacation days, we wanted to go somewhere relatively close to home that had a combination of relaxation and activities.
Today is my dadâ€™s 85thÂ birthday, and I am so lucky to be able to celebrate with him. Weâ€™ll do what we both like to do most â€“ go out to lunch together (with my mom, too, of course!) and spend a couple of hours talking about my kids, politics, movies, work, the Yankees, whateverâ€™s happening in the news, and more about my kids. Iâ€™m proud to admit Iâ€™m still a daddyâ€™s girl.
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".
