A good night’s sleep boosts brain power, helps build muscle, burns excess fat, and sets you up for the day ahead. It is, quite simply, one of the most important variables of living, yet few of us actually get our recommended 7-9 hours per night. Fixing bad sleeping habits isn’t easy, after all, in today’s world of instant consumerism we live extremely hectic lives. However, studies indicate that the negative affects of sleep deprivation can come into play within just 48 hours.
Did new-GTLDs start off on the wrong foot from the beginning? In a country where everybody travels by bus, launching a different but inferior bus may get some business, but launching a car is almost certainly going to be more successful... The first wave of home computer users often talk the days of MS-DOS and the terrible “8.3” file name structure that everybody was bound to. Imagine the relief when Windows came along and gave files names that humans could find useful.
Starting your own business is one of the most exciting times of an entrepreneur's life. The thrill of running your own show, the terror at realizing you don't know what you don't know, the elation as you read an email from a customer who gushes about your product, all of these things become part and parcel of the job of running a successful business.
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".
