Oct. 29 is National Cat Day and the perfect time to add a furry friend to your family. But before picking out your very own fluff ball with whiskers, it's important to do your research. Just like with dogs, the cost for certain cat breeds can be astronomically high. To help you on your quest to become a proud pet parent, Lana Fraley Rich, cat expert and owner of Catsultant, shares the priciest and most affordable cat breeds from around the world.
Oct. 11 is National Coming Out Day — the perfect time to look at the advances of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the workplace. Though the “gay pay gap” is very real — the Atlantic reported in 2015 that Canadian gay men earn almost 5 percent less than straight men, while lesbians earn nearly 9 percent less than straight men — members of the LGBT+ community are blazing trails in the business world.
If you’re suffering from chronic insomnia, alternative or natural medicine may help. But you’ll need to see a professional. “When it comes to Chinese herbs, everyone has their own reaction,” says Folk. That means that what works for someone else might not work for you, so you need a professional to recommend personalized treatment based on your personal sleep pattern and the cause of your sleep issues.
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".
