With 2017 in the rearview mirror, it’s time for a parting wave to the word of the year — truth — according to the Global Language Monitor. It seems many Americans bandied this about this past year, possibly because of the news and those accused of being “complicit,” which is the word of the year at Dictionary.com. Doubtless many had to look that up also.So you are not complicit with their naiveté, it means to be involved or associated in illegal activity or wrongdoing. Collusion.
Every New Year is a time for reckoning — out with the old, in with the new, and nowhere more so than in the fashion industry. Designers already have decided what will stay and what will go, and if you plan to be au courant, you’ll have to go full metal jacket — metallics are in — and warrior-up your jewelry.
LAFAYETTE — Dr. Bryan Sibley doesn't know exactly when it dawned on him to write about God. “I can’t go back to a single moment, but one was sitting at my office desk at 2 a.m.,” Sibley says. “I was working all the time.”But write about God he did. The pediatrician and president of the Louisiana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics is the author of "God First," a slim spiritual memoir about setting life’s priorities underscored by Sibley’s own personal narrative.
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".
