When my wife got pregnant we decided she would go back to work soon after the birth, as she was earning a lot more money than me and she wanted to see a big project through till the end. So I left my job to care for our son, but we agreed that once the project was done she would leave her job, take over the childcare and I would return to work. Our son is now 18 months old, my wife’s project is finished, but now she’s saying she wants to stay at work and has been offered a promotion.
I’m a woman in my late twenties and my husband is 20 years older than me . We got together five years ago and have a four-year-old son, who’s about to start school in September. My husband is a fantastic person – so kind, really generous and totally reliable. He’ll do anything for me and our son. Here’s my problem: I fell in love with all those amazing qualities, but I just don’t find him sexually attractive – not enough to spend the rest of my life with him.
Recently, my wife and I decided to separate after being together for 10 years. Sadly, the spark had gone, we just weren’t getting on and we would argue over nothing. We haven’t told anyone yet – we are waiting a few weeks until our kids go back to school and I start a new job. Things are quite amicable, but we’re both stressed about money after she was made redundant and I’ve had a few weeks of no income. It’s not a good time for one of us to be moving out of the family home and renting a flat.
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".
