Today I am celebrating Zen Clipper. Yes, celebrating. If you have a wiggly cat or other pet who won’t sit still for claw trimming, or you freak out with fear of hurting your dog, cat, bird or reptile by accidentally clipping into the quick, you will understand my enthusiasm. Zen Clipper makes clipping cat and other pet claws stress-free and so much easier because it prevents cutting your pet’s quick, which causes pain and bleeding. What is the quick?
The word intention has many nuances, yet ultimately means one thing: a goal. Intention is aim, hope, motive, object, point. Act or instance of becoming mentally determined to pursue a particular result. A purpose or goal that is succinctly planned. Purpose, meaning or importance. The direction or orientation of the mind. Most of us have a ton of choices every day.
I recently answered a question asked by Valerie Richter of about how I save money, and one of my answers was I use when I shop online to get money back on purchases. I also promised a review of this online shopping app and browser plugin that has saved me around $120 over just a couple of months, so here is my Ebates review. I shop online frequently, so your mileage may vary – but I’ll explain later how I maximize my cash back.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
