The alpha bluejay that steals nuggets from the dog's dish stands out in the evergreen boughs weighed down by snow and pulled by relentless wind.Skittish sparrows pale in comparison to the bluejay's plumage. The big bird seems to me a braggart, a king and non-benevolent master. Then again, the bluejay has never been the subject of Mathew's writing in the New Testament:"Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.
A northwest wind rattled through the brittle cornstalks, which will soon fall to a combine's wrath.Mourning doves gathered on the electric line while blackbirds, with no particular place to be, raised a din and darted among the scrub willows queued along the creek bank.A squirrel carried a fat corn ear to the dead elm tree that stubbornly remains standing on the field edge.
"Do you want to spend the rest of your life in a nursing home eating gruel? "For the record, gruel consists of cereal — oat, wheat, rye or rice — boiled in water or milk. In any case, it wasn't the doctor's intent to slam nursing homes or gruel aficionados.The point the doctor wanted to make was that a person with stroke symptoms shouldn't wait two days before telling someone.
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".
