“This Is Us” accomplished the astounding feat of bringing back appointment viewing. During primetime on Tuesday, Sept. 26, more families since the days of NBC’s Must See TV are expected to tune in for the season premiere. At the time of the actual airing! But before we plant our butts in front of the TV, let’s review why we’re willing to let NBC dictate our actions and whereabouts.
We were running late and I dumped my daughter’s half-drunk drink down the sink. I didn’t realize she intended to take it with her. “Where. Is. It!” she raged. I pointed to the sink. “I despise you,” my daughter seethed, stomping to the car. It would have been laughable, were it not said dripping with venom and accompanied by the slamming of a car door. At 12, my oldest daughter has that powerful cocktail of hormones bubbling like Krakatoa one minute and oozing giggles and hugs the next.
(ALLTHEMOMS.com) - Of all the things that pregnant women worry about — and the list is uncomprehendingly long — stillbirth is the darkest of all. Some don’t even allow their mind to go there, though one out of 160 pregnancies end this way. Many times doctors seem at a loss to explain why, which can compound the devastating pain of losing a child at or after the 20th week of pregnancy. Now an Australian study has an answer as to why and how to prevent stillbirths in the future.
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".
