It’s been a minute since my last post but I wanted to close out 2017 with a bang. Whether you’re throwing a big blowout, a quiet get together with just a few friends or staying warm and cozy at home watching the Twilight Zone marathon, TheLUSHiouslife has a perfect path for you to follow. Read on if you’re still trying to figure out how to pull off your New Year’s Eve drinks situation with minimum fuss and maximum style.
A quintessentially British film that centers on a group of friends who always seem to be attending one wedding or another. When perennial best man Charles (Hugh Grant at his most boyish and charming) meets and beds visiting American Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at wedding number one, he believes he’s finally met his match, but they part. However, their paths keep crossing over the course of many months, and a handful of nuptials. Why We Love It: It has wit and charm to spare.
Raise your hand if you have relatives who are very passionate and opinionated about current events. Keep it raised if you’re worried that your festive holiday meal will turn into a full-blown shouting match about everything from Al Franken to whatever the President’s tweeting about today. This holiday season, avoid hot-button topics from the news and leave the fighting to Facebook. Try these alternative conversation starters to help foster a little détente at the dinner table. 1.
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".
