My niece will be one in August. The last time I babysat, my sister asked me if I would mind giving her a bath. My niece made me nervous, especially when I tried to stand up in her baby tub like a little surfer. I managed to get her wrapped up in a big towel without getting myself drenched in bath water. I carried her into the nursery where her mother had laid out her footie-jammies and left some lotion out that claimed to battle baby eczema.
In grad school, Iâ€™d often talk with my professors about my fear of publishing my memoir â€“ All of my most private thoughts unleashed on the world! Theyâ€™d always say to worry about publishing later and keep writing. But what happens when the writing is done? What happens when you know itâ€™s time to submit a piece to a website or a magazine where actual people will read it?
In a relationship or life jam? Lemme unstuck your life: AskMindaHoney@leoweekly.com. I’ve been dating a girl for the past two years, and it has been really great. There are no jealousy issues or mistrust, and we are making plans to one day live together. I recently noticed a pattern in her behavior that, quite frankly, is raising some red flags for me.
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".
