It's Time To Stop Shying Away From Women You Think Are 'Intimidating'
Christmas tree decorations are arguably the most important part of the whole holiday decorating process. Christmas trees are like the face of the season and everyone, including the people outside of your home, can see whether or not you’ve put one up. A well-decorated tree is not only a statement piece, it's a beloved tradition that dates back 1,000 years. It was a little different back then, though: Instead of standing upright, Christmas trees were hung upside down from the ceiling by chains.
The holiday season can be intimidating. Between gift shopping and creating standout treats for your kid's school's annual Christmas bake sale, you barely have enough time to attend the annual office party, never mind figuring out what you're going to wear to it. I mean, it's not like us busy women have time to curate our wardrobes or spend hours shopping for the right look.
Food always works as a solid gift, no matter the occasion, especially if you're running out of ideas. The best part about a last-minute foodie gift? No one will ever know or even care if you were tight on time â€” because, let's face it, eating delicious food makes us forget about everything else. Olive Garden is making it easier than ever to snag a hit last-minute present with a festive breadstick promotion.
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".
