in: You and Your Family>, Pregnancy Stories>, PregnancyDo you ever wonder why it is we have ways of grieving for children and adults who pass but none for pregnancy loss? We might soon, though, thanks to a practice borrowed from abroad. The Japanese tradition of Jizo statues “is starting to spread in the west,” according to the Independent. The article goes on to explain:“In Japan, some women find comfort in Jizo statues which line temples and cemeteries across the country.
I used to be one of those moms. The ones who complain about middle-of-the-night feedings, teething, potty training, homework, and picky eaters. The ones who act like it’s the end of the world if your baby suffers from colic, or won’t let you put him down, or only sleeps for two hours at a clip. Like your life is sooo hard if your toddler won’t wean, or sticks his hand down his diaper obsessively.
The family discovered mid-flight that their son had head lice and were told they would be barred from boarding their connecting flight because of the bugs. A dad says he and his family, who were en route to Nashville from Paris, were pulled out of the friendly skies because his 6-year-old son had head lice. And now the Internet is divided as to whether Delta airlines made the right call, or was unfair to restrict travel based solely on pesky bugs in a child's hair.
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".
