People discuss the issue of loose dogs with much fervor and anger – and it’s good to talk about it in a respectful way that makes the community safer. Some will dig in and vow to never tie their beloved pet up while others keep them safe by keeping them in the house. I wanted to write something from my perspective about our three dogs, to offer a different take on the highly-charged issue, and demonstrate how tricky it is dealing with animals who have such a wide range of personalities.
If you pick up David Sherman’s book and you happen to know him personally, even just a little bit, you can’t help but read the Alcoholic’s Daughter like it was his personal memoir, with the base, of course, strong fiction writing. How much of it was pure truth, smattered with colour to jazz up the bland parts? His stellar writing is what draws readers in.
Elder Harvey Gabriel has translated the Bible and many other forms of scripture, but in order to share his knowledge of the language to a broader audience, he launched a dictionary back in 2014 to serve as a guide. Once it came out he soon realized a second edition would be needed, and more and more, as he read his old Mohawk books dating back to the 1700s, he made notes of what should be in it.
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".
