Rules governing who is eligible for parental leave and pay are complex, depending on such factors as how many hours you work, whether you pay into the state disability fund, how long you have worked for your current employer, as well as how many workers your employer has and where they are located.
When Cat Crist gave birth, she got 14 weeks off to recover from a caesarian delivery and nurse her new son. Her job was held for her return, and, if she chooses, she is entitled to another six weeks of unpaid leave during his first year. “I wasn’t physically or mentally ready to return to work after eight weeks,” recalled the 36–year-old restaurant manager. “I work for a big company so they had my position covered. After 14 weeks, I was ready.”Gaby Berreth wasn’t so lucky.
Orange County job numbers in July showed some surprising trends, with more people counted as out of work and fewer jobs for them to fill. Joblessness rose to 4.2 percent in July from 3.8 the month before. But that was for a good reason: new job-seekers turned out by the thousands, either because they just graduated from high school or college, or because they were lured by an improved economy. That meant a jump of 7,000 people who were counted as unemployed, for a total of 67,000.
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".
