For the past 17 years, Disneyland has displayed an over-the-top gingerbread house at its Haunted Mansion Holiday, and this year a crowd favorite is back in a big way after a 13-year absence from the freaky festivities. On display now, a 7-foot-tall gingerbread Oogie Boogie, the villain from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, looms over a 6-foot-tall gingerbread house, with more than 70 bugs "scurrying" through the entire display.
Shopping for a new couch can be infuriating. As soon as you find the right shape, color and firmness, you're likely to find that it's several hundred — or even thousands — of dollars out of your budget. But when Krys from the blog Melodrama started her search for a new piece, she had her eye on a $250 Karlstad couch she found in the clearance section of IKEA. Then she took that plain white couch and turned it into the millennial pink sofa of her dreams with just $50 more.
It's the most wonderful time of the year. No, it's not Christmas (yet). For the eighth year in a row, Moe's is bringing back Free Queso Day on Thursday Sept. 21 and this year they've upped the ante. If you head to Moe's on Sept. 21 you can get a 6-ounce cup of queso with chips at participating locations—no purchase necessary.
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".
