This card was an old black and white photo of a kid about 5 years old dressed in a 1948 cold weather uniform of overshoes and wool coat, standing there in the middle of the winter with his tongue stuck to a flagpole.I remember that happened often when I was a kid, only the metal object was more often a pump handle. And there the kid stood and cried, frozen to the pump, until his mother came to the rescue with a pan of hot water.
We scrambled to find a charger. They're usually missing when you need them most, you know. But there it was, so it was plugged in, and the phone was re-energized without further panic. How convenient for our phones, our computers, our electric cars and cordless razors and electric lawn mowers and all other electronic gadgets, we just plug them in and get the energy that's available at every outlet. It's almost miraculous.The energy inventory then switched to part two — human energy.
Auld Lang Syne is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788. The words of the title translate to "old long since" and the message of the song is that old times, old friends and love should not be forgotten. The words "we'll take a cup o' kindness yet" suggest a drink shared to symbolize friendship, good health, good will and "the remembrance of noble deeds." Great sentiments.The song was popularized by Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadian orchestra from 1939 until 1977 when Lombardo died.
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".
