This is an Aprilaire sponsored post. Are you or will you be renovating your home? I love planning a renovation. Picking the paint, the flooring, new furniture. Have you thought about making your home a healthy home during your next renovation? Renovating our basement. I’ll be honest, when we renovated our basement, I didn’t think too much about the quality of the air in our home. I wish I had especially during the renovation.
This is an Aprilaire sponsored post. In the past 20 years, we have built two homes. We were total newbies when we built the first home and there were a lot of things we would have done differently. Fortunately, a few years later we had the opportunity to do those different things. This time we wanted to build a healthy family home. Because we had young growing kids, we thought a lot about building a healthy house.
This is an Aprilaire sponsored post. The holidays are the one time of the year where we bring in a lot of fresh live trees and decorations. Then we struggle to keep them alive long enough to make it through Christmas. Not only do we want a beautiful tree for Christmas Day, but a dry tree is a dangerous tree. Having a dry tree isn’t good for your family’s health either. Want to know how to keep your Christmas tree alive through the holidays? Continue on….
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".
