One could sum up the two basic differing philosophies of the human race with a single ridiculous metaphor: the inkjet printer vs. laser printer.Each has its advantages, and each has its downfalls. The inkjet printer offers an economic advantage when it’s time to buy one off the shelf. It’s cheap, lightweight and generally works with any computer.The laser printer is more pricey. It’s also heavier and generally larger when it sets on your desktop. Advantage inkjet.
Relative to the total amount of hours I spend in my garage per year, it never ceases to amaze me how cluttered the place can become in a relatively short period of time. Anyhow, that was my Labor Day project: to clean up the monstrosity known as the Pearl family garage. I threw things out. I burned other things. I swept, and organized, sorted and even piled.
I met up with a buddy of mine Saturday, and we spent some quality time visiting and catching up during a rare Saturday midday football game down in Kansas City.Years ago, I was this man’s teacher, and later we coached basketball together in King City. He’s a teacher now, and I’m out of the education business; we’re also each married now and have households with multiple children.You know the story: life got busy and we have not kept up quite so well as we might have. Nobody is to blame.
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".
