Social Anxiety In Teens: Is My Child Introverted, Shy, or Socially Anxious? (1) Prefer pizza night with a few friends to a raucous dance party? (2) Take time to warm up in social settings? (3) Avoid gatherings altogether because they feel they don’t belong, and that others will think they look and act dumb? If any of this sounds familiar, it’s not only because your tween is at an awkward age where their body is changing and friends are more important than breathing.
When the weather outside is frightful — and the fire is so delightful — your instinct might be to grab a glass of wine or a cup of cocoa and hibernate until spring. But consider fighting that urge, grabbing your parka and scarf, and launching the New Year with a cold-weather adventure. We’re not talking about skiing or ice skating. Kick it up a notch and snowkite across a frosty lake or drive a dog team through a glittering winter landscape.
When You Have a Friend With Money (Or Without)My older daughter’s classmate invited friends to fly on a private jet to see Mick Jagger perform at the Super Bowl. My younger daughter’s classmate declined a movie outing because her mom didn’t get paid until the following week. Friends with money, and friends with no money. These examples of financial differences may occupy different ends of the economic spectrum, but both scenarios raised complicated feelings and questions for my teens.
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".
