Sometimes the love of a dog can help us keep going — even when moving forward feels impossibly hard. One dog who inspired thousands to persevere will be honored in a special way on Monday, Sept. 11. A life-size bronze statue of the beloved disaster search dog, named Bretagne, will be unveiled in a Houston suburb that’s still feeling the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
For a little more than a year now, Cat Belknap and Nat Telfer have been sharing their hilarious “Mom Truths” videos on the TODAY Parenting Team — and making mothers everywhere snort coffee out of their noses. The Canadian comedy duo, known to their fans as Cat & Nat, typically make their short #MomTruth Friday videos in the front seat of a car, a haven where they can vent, laugh and talk honestly about what motherhood is really like.
As usual, crowds crushed into Rockefeller Plaza on Friday morning for TODAY’s Toyota Concert Series performance, and as usual, a rollicking good time was had by all. But one intrepid reporter on the scene dared to ask a bold question: Who the heck is this guy up on stage? Ben Aaron, a self-described “tall, dark, and awkward” NBC reporter in New York City, was unflinching as he approached scads of cheerful fans and asked them, “Who is Phillip Phillips?
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".
