There is no place more miserable to be on Thanksgiving Day than in a buffet line in a Las Vegas casino.Trust me. I’ve been there.Back when I was single and a reporter for the Las Vegas Sun, I found myself new in town and alone on the holiday in the middle of Sin City. So, I spent 90 minutes standing in line at the Texas Station Casino waiting for a helping of turkey and dressing.I found myself talking to the others in line.
Obtaining the drug was easy, but getting rid of it was hard. When my ankle was reconstructed recently, the surgeon prescribed oxycodone, a powerful opioid painkiller. I only needed the medicine for a couple days and ended up with a lot left over. I tried to take the remaining pills to a local pharmacy to have them destroyed, but my pharmacist just shook her head. The law bars her employer from accepting such powerful painkillers, she explained.
SPRINGFIELD — I’d never been to a barber who didn’t have a comb.And I found myself sitting in a barber chair, the only white guy in the room and the barber asks, “How would you like your hair parted?”I replied, “Hand me a comb and I’ll show you.”He replied he didn’t own a comb, but handed me a device called a “pick.” I must have given the tool with a black fist on its plastic handle a perplexed look, because everyone in the shop started laughing.You might ask, “Why were you there?”Well, we...
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".
