Question: I had a plumbing company come to my house and give me an estimate on replacing a kitchen faucet and some shower fixtures. The plumber told me that he couldn’t see behind the walls to tell me what would need to be done. He told me that he hoped it would be a simple fix, but that the “worst-case scenario” would be $3,100. In other words, if the plumber had to tear through the wall and replace all of the old pipes, the cost could possibly run that high.
Question: My wife and I bought our house in 2011. Soon after we bought it, we landscaped the back and front yards. We replaced the existing fence in its exact location, and we put in hardscaping and concrete planters that go right up to the fence line along with a concrete pad for a hot tub. When we bought the house, our neighbor was an elderly woman with whom we were on friendly terms.
Question: About six months ago, I found out that my husband had been unfaithful for the past few years. We have gone to counseling with a marriage and family therapist, and my husband has been working with his own therapist. He has been very apologetic, and he even tells me that he is working hard to resolve the psychological issues that caused his behavior in the first place. I believe that he is trying, and he appears to be putting what happened behind him.
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".
