Soon after President Donald Trump took the oath of office last year, his raging case of xenophobia inspired a "Day Without Immigrants" on Feb. 16. Naturalized citizens and undocumented workers in major cities across the country stayed home while some businesses rejected profits to demonstrate just how much the United States' culture and economy relies on contributions from non-native residents.
Did you know that live-streaming deliveries is an up-and-coming birth fad? What about flavored ice chips? Seeding? How about plastic surgeons? Would it ever occur to you to have one present while giving birth via caesarian section? If you said "yes" to the last one, you're on trend (apparently). Never mind absurd accusations of being "too posh to push," some women are doing something even wilder while giving birth via C-section: They're requesting a plastic surgeon in the delivery room.
A new version of Aspen Monopoly all but sold out as soon as it hit store shelves before the holidays last month. While the game's marketers told The Aspen Times that 5,000 units were produced initially and a second run is anticipated, an even newer and more updated version also is already in the works. Billed as The New Real Aspen Monopoly, the buzz on the latest adaptation of the 83-year-old classic board game is that it'll more accurately reflect life in modern-day Aspen.
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".
