There are many apps that monitor your kids' cell phone usage, but a the app called ParentWise claims to be a little different. It offers peace of mind for parents by letting them know where their kids are, where they're going and will send an alert if they fail to show up. “You can very quickly see by red dots where she spent her time,” said Steve Horst, Parentwise App Developer.
A lot of kids go through that phase where they ask a lot of questions. Why is the sky blue? Why are puppies furry? Now, there's a new child-friendly feature available on Google Assistant that's aimed at answering some of those questions in a way children can understand. The feature relies on the premise that internet answers are often too complex for little ones. Google Assistant Kids detects a child's age by pitch and pronunciation then answers with a response that's age-appropriate.
There are a lot of options if you're interested in monitoring your kid's cell phone, but one app says it does it all. MMGuardian is an app parents can install on their kids' phones that will control what apps can be used, how much time can be spent in an app and even block inappropriate websites. Here are several key features:Parents can manage MMGuardian from the Parent App or web portal. MMGuardian offers a free two-week trial.
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".
