There are a lot of weird things out there — especially when it comes to parenting — but kissing your toddler on the lips isn’t one of ’em. Olivia Wilde recently shared an incredibly sweet photo of her giving her three-year-old son, Otis a smooch. And because said smooch was on the lips, commenters thought this was the perfect opportunity to tell her that kissing her son “like her husband” is wrong. You know what’s actually weird?
For some of us it would be our wedding rings, or our phones, but for many kids, their special stuffed animal is their prized possession. Parents know this, and when one mom ran across a child’s stuffed animal at an interstate rest stop, she did what she could to get it back to its owner. Katie Hoeppner was at a rest stop on Iowa’s Interstate 80 when she happened upon an adorable little doggie lovey in the bathroom.
Every kid loves Frozen, and every kid loves Olaf. Just the sound of that happy little snowman’s voice is enough to cause countless smiles, and actor Josh Gad, who voices Olaf in the movie, knows that better than anyone. That’s why he’s using his Olaf voice to make sick kids feel a little bit better. The actor has a habit of calling chronically ill kids in character as Olaf to bring a little sunshine to their day. “It’s such a little thing that I do that goes such a long way for these children.
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".
