Tradition fell to the wayside on the Saturday edition of what was formerly known as "Prairie Home Companion." The live broadcast from Town Hall in New York City started with host Chris Thile abandoning the traditional theme song, "Tishomongo Blues" ("I hear that old piano...") with lyrics by Garrison Keillor.
Modeling for my roommate, I might ask: “Will anyone notice this wrinkle?” It doesn’t matter if she waves me a forgiving hand — I’m going to steam it. Trust me, I’ve read plenty of pro-wrinkle arguments, and I’ve looked a fool plenty of times. I’d love to be the person who believes in wearing all-natural pleats like I believe in forgoing plastic surgery, but I am not that person. Why attempt style only to flub on presentation? My laundromat dwellers, there’s a fix.
Here's a surprise: Residents of the most expensive coastal U.S. cities seem to be spending within their means. At least a dozen of their southern counterparts are not. Both New York City and San Francisco residents fell within the top 10 for healthy balance sheets, a new study found. Out of 50 U.S. cities, Greenville, S.C., residents were the best for spending within their means, while San Antonio, Texas citizens spent the most, according to a recent LendingTree study.
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".
