Pumpkin spice season arrives sooner every year, with consumers finding pumpkin products on the shelves as early as August. Not only are the products arriving earlier, but they’re getting weirder as well. Have we hit the Golden Age of pumpkin spice, or have we taken the trend too far? Before you make your decision, check out the newest and most outlandish pumpkin spice products for those of you living the PSL (Pumpkin Spice Lifestyle). Why eat a pumpkin pie when you can smell like one?
As Hurricane Irma, now a Category 5 storm, makes its first landfall in the Caribbean, two more tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic. Tropical storm Jose formed east of Hurricane Irma Tuesday afternoon. It's the 10th tropical storm of the season with maximum sustained winds of 60mph. The National Hurricane Center said that Jose is expected to become a hurricane by Wednesday night. Tropical storm Katia formed in the Gulf of Mexico early Wednesday morning, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, many pet owners have been separated from their animals. More than one million people and their animals in the Houston area have been displaced because of the storm. Finding Rover, Petco Foundation, and Houston SPCA are teaming up to provide Harvey victims with a database they can use to find their lost pets. Photos of animals that arrive at shelters will be automatically loaded into a database.
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".
