We recently got back home from a quick overnight trip to the “big city” (and big city to me means more than 1300 people). During our time there I can’t even count how many times I remarked something along the lines of…”People are moving so quickly!” or “Why are they getting upset over that…can’t they see it’s just stuff?”I stopped at a few thrift stores and a few big box stores and watched as some left with carts loaded sky high.
Looking for something new to read? Today I’m sharing a few of the books that I’ve been reading this month and a short review so you can decide whether or not you wish to add them to your bookshelves! I’ve always been a reader but in the past year or two I’ve really gotten back into the habit. Between our great little local library, Thriftbooks, and Amazon, it seems that I always have plenty of books to fill my mind with new ideas!
Homemade Shampoo is one of those tasks that seems a little scary at first, even a little bit impossible. But as it is with most things, it’s easier than you think it might be. Today I’m going to share with you how to make your own shampoo with a few simple ingredients. And yes, you probably already have these ingredients in your pantry. taking a look at the ingredients on a bottle of shampoo, you might expect it to be difficult or impossible to make your own shampoo .
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".
