Can you believe that we are now head first in Back to School! Holy cow this summer feels like it has flown by and now it is time for school! In our area school doesn’t start until the first week of September but I am seeing a ton of 1st day of school pics on Facebook so I figured it was the perfect time to talk about Back to School tips, tricks, and ideas!
Things I didnâ€™t expect in my life until I went to Costa RicaSeeing a toucan has been high on my bird list for longer than I can even admit. My main goal for my trip to Costa Rica was to see birds. I was so hoping to see a toucan but I kept missing them. We were at the Casa Blanca Hotel and our guide told me the calls we were hearing was toucans but we never saw them. We were driving down the road and one flew over our van but only the guide saw it.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Jewelers Mutual Insurance. All opinions are 100% mine. Let’s be honest and say that we all dream of our engagement ring from the moment we know what a wedding is. We dream of what it will look like, what kind of sparkles it will have, who will give it to us, what they will say, when will it happen, and so many other dreams go into this moment in our lives. I will never forget the day that John proposed while on the beach in Hawaii.
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".
