Now if you’re not parking your car in your garage, chances are you’ve been scraping ice off your windshield, but a mixture of three parts vinegar and one part water can get rid of any of that ice and prevent it from forming the next morning. Is your car suddenly guzzling gas? The fix, might just be getting air into your tires! “You want to have the middle of the tire riding on the ground.
As is typical for this time of the year, we always start to see a little taste of winter here and there…like the first flakes flying by last night in parts of the state. Check out this video from Michael Tortora via Twitter:This was at 10:50 last night in Wolcott. Sent it to Gil pic.twitter.com/2U5U0YlpSP— Michael Tortora November 8, 2017Call that little taste of winter a warning because we have a lot more winter to come over the coming days.
If you’ve been paying attention to the forecast today, you might have heard us talk about a little bit of mixed precipitation possible in the hills of Connecticut tonight. It may come as a surprise to you to hear this, but this is not abnormal at all! So why does it feel so strange? Well first off, what is typical for the first snowfall in Connecticut? As the map above shows, most of Connecticut should have already seen their first snow.
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".
