1. Touch him, but don’t grope him. Put a hand on his shoulder when you say hello. Slap his arm when you laugh at one of his jokes. Sit so close that your thigh brushes against his. Subtle touches make the biggest impact. 2. Draw attention to your lips. Lick them, touch them, or reapply your lipstick in front of him. Make sure he notices how smooth and soft they are, so he’ll have no choice but to imagine kissing you. 3. If you’re sitting down, cross and uncross your legs.
Florida officials have announced partial evacuations for Miami-Dade County ahead of Hurricane Irma . Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said on Twitter Tuesday that he may be asking zones A and B to evacuate as early as tomorrow. He also said evacuations for special needs residents will start tomorrow morning. “This hurricane is far too powerful, poses far too great a threat for us to delay actions any further,” Gimenez said, according to the Washington Post .
Last week, we learned of a 12-year-old girl named Shreya Darji who has an ant colony living in her head, and according to a new video from Alltime10s, the story doesn’t hold a candle to 10 animals found living inside humans. Take the man who found out the pain and itchiness in his right ear was really an infestation of baby cockroaches. The man’s doctors concluded a female cockroach had entered the ear and laid eggs. Once the eggs hatched, the insects were "entirely blocking his ear canal."
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".
