It remains up for debate what dreams really mean. Some argue dreams don't mean anything at all. Others say it's your brain trying to organize the day's events. Still others say it's your subconscious desires coming through. Many of us will question the meaning of our dreams, especially when they're typically profound. Take death, for instance. What does it mean if you dream about someone dying? Let's explore, shall we?
If you've ever shopped at a store with dollar bins, then you're probably aware of that sinking feeling in your gut, when you know you're about to buy a bunch of stuff you don't even need just because it's a dollar. Of course you need that disposable tablecloth with cartoon turkeys on it, even though it's July and you don't have a kitchen table. The dollar bins are no accident; they're one of many ways you're tricked into spending more money than you should when you go shopping.
Readers, young and old, lend me your ears. There's still time to get those holiday gifts requests in; and if your list for Santa is looking a little barren, I've got what you need: teeny, tiny animals that hang from your fingers and even respond to you. This might just be 2017's answer to Hatchimals, and people are so obsessed that these things are selling out everywhere. So what are Fingerlings, and what's with all the hullabaloo?
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".
