Have you ever left something behind in a hotel during a trip? Did you get it back? I left a very expensive watch behind that was given to me as a Christmas present and the staff claims they can't find it. Sunday morning I took it off to take a shower before heading to the airport. I put it on the bathroom counter and forgot to put it back on. We packed up, checked out and caught the 5am shuttle to the airport. It wasn't until we were in the air I realized I'd left the watch behind.
A few inches of snow in the North is just another Winter day. A few inches of snow in the South is the end of the world. And how to get rid of all that snow depends on where it falls. In the north there's snow blowers and snow plows to keep roads, sidewalks and driveways clear. But in the South, they don't have the equipment to deal with Winter weather so they need to improvise, using leaf blowers and street sweepers. While we were in Memphis Winter hit the city hard.
Before you go to bed where do you leave your cell phone ? Don't plug it in to charge and place it under your pillow. The results can be dangerous. A fire department is warning cell phone users against placing cell phones under pillows at night. The result can lead to burns in the sheets as seen in the photo they posted on Facebook . Putting cell phones under blankets may make the phone overheat, causing a possible fire.
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".
