Usually, when a mom steps into the shower while the kids are awake, she has no clue what scene she’ll be walking out to a few minutes later. The time it takes to use conditioner may be all your kids need to go from fine to Lord of the Flies. But when Amanda Bowman Gray asked her 11-year-old daughter Lydia to keep an eye on her youngest brother for a minute, the mom got out of the shower and found the two performing the world’s most adorable duet (with a special appearance by their brother).
We learned so much from Enchanted: that getting engaged to someone you just met isn’t always the best idea, that life isn’t always like a fairy tale, and that everyone walking through Central Park is a professional dancer who magically knows the lyrics to the song you just made up right then. The animated/live action movie found a perfect balance between romance and poking fun at all the happily ever after Disney princess plot lines we were fed as children.
Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles has added her name to the sickeningly long list of women who’ve come forward to accuse former US Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse. Biles issued her brave statement via Twitter, one day before the start of Nassar’s sentencing hearing for seven counts of criminal sexual conduct.
5 years ago today I was wheeled into the NICU. There I met my twin boys, born almost 2 months too early, their tiny bodies covered in tubes. Thanks to the amazing doctors, nurses & staff @YNHH, today they're healthy, happy, and hopped up on cupcakes. I can never thank you enough. https://t.co/1Uilcfn5Xr
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".
