Question: I work for a small business as an assistant to the office manager. When customers have a service-related issue and refuse to pay an invoice, my boss makes me the first one to call and inquire about it. In other words, I get an earful from the customer about what has gone wrong. It’s the part of the job I dislike the most, but I have grown a thicker skin over the last few years.
Question: My wife and I live in Davis and have two children. We have been going through a lot of marital issues recently. We have considered divorce, but both of us put it off for the children’s sake. This spring, we had a serious conflict, which prompted her to visit to her sister up in Oregon for a couple of weeks. She returned, but things did not get better. We agreed that when the children were out of school, she could take them up to Oregon for the summer to stay with her sister.
Question: My mother died a few years ago, and she left some property to me and to her grandchild, my son. My son received a small residential property. Since it was transferred to his name, he has cleaned up the property and has been renting it out. He recently told me that he was planning to put the property in both his and his wife’s names. He apparently wants to make sure the property is held as joint tenants so that it can go to his wife when he dies.
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".
