I was supposed to start college in about two weeks. A couple of days ago, they told me that I couldn’t take one of my classes if I wanted one of my scholarships because the scholarship requires you to be taking 15 credits, and I was at 14. They conveniently didn’t tell anyone this until MONTHS after registration started. I spent about five hours yesterday trying to find a different class. There weren’t any that I could take.
So this guy is in my homeroom in middle school and I think I like him, but he’s really mean to me and I did nothing to him. Help. You have probably often heard that if a guy is mean to you that’s because he likes you. Maybe, but that doesn’t make it OK to be mean to you. He could be an immature middle-school kid. He could also just be a jerk. What is it about him that you like? He may be cute and cool but if he is not also kind then that should be a deal maker. Why is he mean?
Hi. So there’s this guy. I’ve know him for years, but he recently started texting me and asking how I am, what am I doing and saying that we should meet for coffee. We met once, and now he keeps texting and talking about casual stuff. The thing is he’s a lot older than me. I’m 20 and he is 36. Because there’s this age difference and we knew each other, I was sure his intentions weren’t romantic and it will be just a friendly meet. But he keeps searching for an opportunity to hang out with me.
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".
