If you are still trying to get your hands on a Fingerling this holiday season, you may need to get creative. Fingerlings, plastic monkeys that hang on fingers, blink and respond to touch and sound, have quickly become one of the most sought-after toys of the year, selling out at major retailers across the country. Parents have scrambled to get these mischievous monkeys, resorting to online auction sites and entering into social media giveaways.
The holidays are coming up fast. But, what do you get for that friend or family member that has everything? Another tie? A bottle of perfume? That novelty ugly sweater? Whether they are into crafting, wine or fly fishing, subscription boxes are a gift-giving strategy for people who have a hard time shopping for the perfect gift. These boxes are filled with an assortment of themed products and arrive by mail once a month for three, six, or 12 months, depending on the company.
Plan on getting your pet a present this holiday? You're not alone. About half of all dog owners and about 39 percent of cat owners purchase gifts for their pets during the holiday season, according to the American Pet Products Association's National Pet Owners Survey. The industry group predicts dog owners will spend an average of about $14 on canine gifts while cat owners spend around $12.
Thanks @NFL and @CBS for swapping away from the International Game in Mexico with ZERO warning to show two teams who are 3-6 and skipping the last 4 minutes of the #NEvsOAK game. Classy. Smh. https://t.co/XyaXXoIPnI
When it's cold and you low key want to eat a whole bowl of @Panera mac n' cheese but you promised yourself to eat "healthy" so you "compromise". Also there was a blood orange lemonade with a dash of seltzer. @shaichhttps://t.co/iXqLYKo24I
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".
