Question: After my father died last year, I received notice that I was a beneficiary of a trust. The money in the trust was not really my father’s but rather an inheritance he received from his uncle. I have been processing the passing of my father and the family dynamics involved with that, and I have struggled to come to grips with whether I should take the inheritance or not. For my own deeply personal reasons, I have decided that I don’t want to accept the money.
Question: I got divorced a few years ago. I have been in a relationship now for almost a year, and my girlfriend recently accepted my marriage proposal. My prior divorce was drawn out with so many arguments and it was so expensive that I really want to avoid that mess, if at all possible. Although I am confident that this marriage will be better in so many ways and go the distance, I want to be realistic. So I am considering a prenup.
Question: Since my mother passed away a few years ago, my dad has been living alone at home and managing somewhat well. Shortly after her death, we visited a lawyer, and my father made me his agent under a power of attorney. I visit him frequently and have coordinated to have someone come by his house on a part-time basis to do some shopping, light cleaning and laundry. My fatherâ€™s behavior started noticeably changing a few months ago.
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".
