Have you ever watched an episode of an anime series and looked at the food with longing, only wishing that it were something easily available here? Do you see posts about the latest in Japanese snack foods on anime sites that makes you want to plan a trip just so that you can eat your way around the country? If you said, yes, you’re not alone. We would also love to try some of the yummy Japanese snacks we can only see on TV and the Internet.
In case you haven’t seen me mention it on Twitter or Facebook, there’s an exciting new development in the world of Alex Grosjean. My first book Zeus, Inc., is getting an audiobook adaptation! I’m really excited about the prospect of getting my work out there in a new way, and even more excited about the narrator working on it.
I have no problem admitting that I’m a comic book nerd. And when it comes to comics, I pretty much read nothing but DC. I might occasionally read a Marvel title, but for me, DC taps into stories, plots and characters that I just really relate to. So every Wednesday, I tune into my favorite comic books and dive into the worlds of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Green Lanterns and more. But there are five specific DC Comics titles that really get me excited when I read them.
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".
