Last year, her controversial New York Times article about maternal ambivalence resulted in an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show. And Waldman’s new novel, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, which hits bookstores on January 24, is already being adapted into a feature film. Waldman, who first gained acclaim for her Mommy-Track Mysteries, and had a hit with her 2003 drug-law drama Daughter’s Keeper, isn’t the only one in her family on Hollywood’s hot list.
How old should children be to have their own cell phones? Some parenting experts say elementary school is too young. But Emeryville-based toy company LeapFrog has a mobile for kids as young as six. We asked LeapFrog’s brand manager, Patti Lew, about the TicTalk phone. Q: How long has this been in the works? A: This has been a very quick launch.
Say it ain't so! Longtime Danville residents Steve and Julie Raleigh are moving out of town. Diablo raises a fond farewell toast (with a keep-in-touch chaser) to our perennial Best of the...
@DougBenson is 100% correct about Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban being the best film in the series. Rewatching it now with kids and it’s endlessly creative and exciting. Top shelf Potter!
@Variety To be fair, he's not quick on his feet in interviews and he's in so much trouble due to Russia probe that he might say something that further incriminates him. It's a shame that the American people have this tire fire as a President, but it's not like we didn't have a choice.
@Lynn_Rose1@bookerbmo I agree that bone spurs are serious enough, but I don't think Trump had them. When he was asked which foot had spurs serious enough to get him a pass from military service, he said he did not remember which foot. Medical records showed they were reported to be on both feet.
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".
