If I like something, I will become the biggest advocate for everyone in my family having one. This comes with mixed feelings for them sometimes, but they ultimately go along with it and humor me. When I adopted my cat, Ninja, for example, my life was immediately better - so what did I do? I made sure every household of my immediate family rescued a cat from the local humane society. They're still thanking me for the scratch marks on their couches and the traces of litter in their carpet!
Netflix’s Bill Nye Saves the World was keenly anticipated by nostalgic fans in their 30s who love science, and based on the ratings after two seasons, the show does not disappoint. In fact, Bill and his correspondents hash out some pretty relevant scientific issues on the show, particularly as it pertains to tech. In one of the first episodes, the show explores the world of AI, discussing its benefits and problems.
Not many people are prepared for the life of entrepreneurship. Leaving a comfortable, albeit monotonous, 9-5 and taking the plunge into the startup world is a feat in itself. When you're finally out of the rat race, it's often not like you imagined. You soon learn that you have to think on your feet and work out a system of your own. I did, anyway. When I started out, I worked 12-16 hours a day because I was on my own and had clients in a few different time zones.
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".
