Having a pool in the backyard would be really nice right about now. But the average cost of an in-ground swimming pool ranges from $33,000 to $55,000. If that’s not in your budget, there are some cool alternatives to traditional pools making a splash on the internet. The latest version takes shipping containers and turns them into swimming pools.

CINCINNATI -- A local company is making it easier for consumers to cash in on businesses' rewards and loyalty programs, and one reward being offered to Reds fans is almost too good to pass up.The idea for LOC Enterprises LLC occurred to Jack Kennamer in 2012, but it wasn't until a recent partnership with the Cincinnati Reds that the company really started to take off.
Let’s be real. Being a mom is not an easy task. And if caring for little people wasn’t hard enough, there’s also that fact that the job can be an isolating one. Sure, there are plenty of websites and Facebook groups you can join. But isn’t there a better way? Maybe. One new app may just revolutionize the way parents are connecting. Peanut, now available on iOS, is an app that helps connects moms with others who live in the same area. In a way, it’s sort of like Tinder.
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".
