All month long we've offered Elf on the Shelf ideas for parents but forgot about the most critical thing when it came to scout elf life: What the heck do you do when you move or touch the elf by mistake? Elf on the Shelf emergencies are no joke. Christmas magic is at stake and reports to Santa can go undelivered (and that means no presents!). A 7-year-old New Jersey girl actually panicked to the point where she called 911 to report the crisis. Thankfully, the elf was okay.
The fantastical exhibition “Steampunk Springfield: Re-Imagining an Industrial City” is coming to the city later this month and bringing with it ideas for the future. Bruce Rosenbaum, affectionately known as the “Evangelist of Steampunk” by Wired Magazine, is the guest curator for the expansive project. “Steampunk is about all reinvention. It’s an art form that wants to inspire people to bring new life and new purpose to objects and places.
The story of Bobby Scott and Cal Hall is a reminder that love always seems to find a way. It appears unexpectedly and especially during the times when the idea of it seems most far away. The two met in Provincetown in 2014, while each were visiting the Cape Cod summertime hot spot with friends.
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".
