When we met Kelsea Ballerini, she said the most interesting thing about her is that she is obsessed with chicken nuggets. Not that she needs another job, but I instantly thought of her when I heard “chicken nugget connoisseur” could be a real job! Would you like to get paid to eat all day? Do you consider yourself an expert in all things related to processed chicken products? Are you able to discern the flavors and textures of frozen snacks down to the subtle hints of salt and pepper?
After the meteor scare last night, Michiganders are wondering how safe we really are. As most probably already knew, Michigan is one of the safest places in the United States when it comes to natural disasters. We don’t have to worry about hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, or wildfires as much as other parts of the country. Michigan came in at #1 for the safest states to live in.
This guest column was submitted by Rob Stone, MD, director of Hoosiers for a Commonsense Health Plan; and Chris Stack, MD, and Fran Quigley, who are with People of Faith for Access to Medicines.Hoosiers have seen the headlines about drug price increases, and many of us see the struggle firsthand. A vial of insulin can cost a person with diabetes 10 times as much as it did in the 1990s. The price of an EpiPen has risen 450 percent.
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".
