I’m in a bit of a quandary at the moment regarding my relationship with my 29-year-old daughter because we are not speaking. They usually come to ours for a day at Christmas, then they (my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren) go to his mother’s for a week or so. The trouble is, when her mother-in-law says jump, they jump. She is 55 going on 21 and lives five minutes from them by car while we live 20 minutes away.
I’m in the middle of a dilemma regarding my ex-boyfriend. I am currently single and would love to find a relationship, but my ex is still in the background, even though he got married recently. We were together for seven years and had our ups and downs during that time. After we’d been together two years we wanted to settle down and talked about marriage, but his family wanted him to wed someone from the same background and religion.
I’m a woman in my early 40s and have a really good job, a great salary and a big network of friends and acquaintances (mostly people I’ve met through work). Anyone looking from the outside would think I led a charmed life and would probably be pretty envious. But here’s the thing – I’m so unhappy in my job and want to leave, but I’m scared to make the move. I suppose I’m worried about making the wrong decision and regretting it, losing my financial security and so on.
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".
