There's nothing America loves more than celebrating holidays with shopping. You can always expect a great sale on most any holiday, and President's Day is no exception. And, the fact that President's Day includes a long weekend means that these sales will last even longer. If you're a parent needing to stock up on a few things, this can definitely work in your favor, as many retailers are putting kid-related gear (like car seats and cribs) on major sale.
With this year's record-breaking flu season in full swing, it's understandable that most everyone is hyper-aware of flu symptoms and what the flu could look like in both children and adults. Since flu symptoms can be so common to cold symptoms, it can often be hard to tell until you're in the thick of it. But, if you're trying to get pregnant, it can get even more confusing. Sometimes, flu and early pregnancy signs look alike, so you want to be more aware of what you're looking for.
Breastfeeding may be natural, but it can often be one of the most difficult parts of new motherhood. Building and managing a nursing relationship that works for both mother and baby is overwhelming and can take time. In many instances, moms also have to wrangle various lifestyle changes due to breastfeeding — lactose-free diets, losing body autonomy, breast pain, and lowered libidos are all common issues that face breastfeeding mothers.
Just got an email from my boys’ school saying they practiced a hard lockdown (read: school shooter) drill today complete with hiding places—my kids are 4 and 2 years old. #GunControlNow#GunContolNow#GunContolNow
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".
