With all the grown children living at home these days, many parents are questioning whether or not they should charge rent. Some are fiercely against it, others are all for it. Obviously circumstances vary between households, but if they are paying their parents something, ideally it shouldn’t be a crazy amount since you’d rather they have enough to put aside for their future so they can get the hell out of your house for good (just us?).
You might know of The Man Who Wore All His Clothes,Â the humorous childrenâ€™s book by Allan Ahlberg, where a man, for reasons not entirely clear, wears allÂ his clothes and ends up saving the day because of it. In real life, a British man was recently arrested in Iceland for trying to board a flight while wearing all the clothes that wouldnâ€™t fit in his checked luggage. Unfortunately, this story doesnâ€™t have quite the same happy ending as the book. Ryan Carney Williams (a.k.a.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, existed a world without Instagram. But now, it’s an all-consuming tool that many people depend on for photos and videos and stories and, occasionally, important messages. And then there’s this: Boys With Bread. Yep, you read that right. If you’re wondering what the catch is, well, there isn’t one. It’s literally an Instagram account dedicated to men posing with bread. No, really, it’s just about dapper dudes with dough. It began as a joke because, obviously.
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".
