You’re out to dinner and the check comes, and you decide to go Dutch. Have you ever noticed that you tend to tip just a little more than your man? Or are your holiday gifts just a tad more altruistic than your brother’s? Turns out, that’s not just by chance. According to a new study from the University of Zurich, published in Nature Human Behaviour, women tend to share money a bit more generously than men. So be proud, because your giving habits are a bit more unselfish!
Don't let all your training go to waste. You’ve trained for months, followed a stringent running plan, and you’ve psyched yourself up the morning of the race. You get your gear together, get your energy packs stocked, and grab your bib to head to the marathon starting line. And after 26.2 grueling miles, you go to reward yourself by checking out the photo evidence of the event … only to find that your bib number has been spotted on several different runners. “How in the world?” you ask.
You put in for paid time off, plan your outfits for the entire trip, and get all your travel information in order. You’re ready to jet set and finally take a break from your busy schedule. But as pre-planned and wonderful as it may seem, your vacation could all be for nothing if you’re still making this one major mistake.
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".
