Last weekend, my husband and I finally had our first dance. And it was on a real honest-to-goodness dance floor.Since we got married in the wilds of Canada, far, far away from my friends, we figured we’d have a good old-fashioned party to celebrate with the folks back here in Indiana once we could get settled in. You know, pretty dresses, food, dancing, all that fun stuff.Thing is, dancing is expensive. DJs deserve to be paid and dance floors have to be rented, you know?
Some people use empty parking lots to teach teenagers to drive.I like to spin circles on the ice in my little two-wheel-drive car.My husband … well, here’s the story. He’s a Jeep guy. He owns a ball cap and at least three T-shirts proclaiming his love for his Jeep. (And only one T-shirt proclaiming his love for me. It’s hard to be jealous of a hunk of metal, though. )His Jeep, sadly, has been out of commission for a couple of months.
It was so cold in Logansport this week, my husband’s family in northern Canada was enjoying warmer temperatures.Mr. Canadian’s family is young and lives in various places across North America, so we all keep in touch via group text. During a recent conversation about the temperatures where all of us are living, my mother-in-law asked how on earth it was colder here than where she lives, in northern Ontario, Canada.“Because #Murica,” I told her. It seemed logical at the time.
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".
