Whenever I experience a set of heavy emotions, or have a sad reaction to something and it moves me to tears, I rarely hold back. I was never one to pause and think that crying in front of people might not be the proper thing to do, or that I needed to be strong and always keep it together. Showing emotions freely, especially crying, was never an issue for me. Maybe the reason I am a crier is because I come from a long line of criers.
She’s that friend you have that ordered her new iPhone X weeks before it was released. She’s the mom who maintains a very intimate relationship with Alexa and isn’t ashamed to admit it. So what kind of gift do you buy your tech-loving BFF (or relative) for Christmas this year? Or better yet, what new tech gadgets do you want to treat yourself to this season? Look no further, because I’ve got 10 of this year’s hottest new (and affordable) gizmos that every modern mom should not be living without.
It’s a sound that can be worse than nails on a chalkboard. Worse than the most annoying and aggravating noises you could ever think of. At times it probably makes you want to wear headphones, slam doors, or just hop in the car and run away. What is it? It’s the sound of your kids arguing. Personally, I can’t take it when I hear my kids having all-out screaming matches, and never-ending arguments over the most ridiculous (and sometimes important) things.
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".
