On the 19th day of November 1993, a suave and inquisitive a journalist was born on the lakeside shores of Kenya. Onto to the world he was let to dig for understanding, meaning and solutions in everyday stories.
YOURSAY: Our girls have become yours, thanks to your bottomless
You have won. Unfairly you have ousted us from our positions. Under the full glare of society, you have taken what is rightfully ours. No amount of favours or efforts we inject into the hustle enjoys the slightest appreciation. Our girls have become yours. Because of your bottomless pocket, it is easy for you to snap a care-free, responsibility-free, baggage-free and wrinkle-free 22-year-old; our 22-year-old. For 120 hours a week, you let us do the hard work.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity...begins rarely read but incessantly quoted novel 'A tale of two cities by Charles Dickens.' That day when the fallacy that the Kenyan job market is flooded will be gone, no words will be better placed to describe the storm that would have rocked our cup of tea.
It strikes me that this is what being a parent is - the terrifying realisation that there is no handbook for raising a child. You have to fake it until you make it. She has dedicated nearly every waking second to the proposition that we, who had somehow limited our horizons, could raise a kid with a limitless horizon. My child’s mother, who I was never sexually involved with save for that fateful cold Eldoret Friday night, deserves most of the credit. Beep! That’s a message alert.
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".
