Democrat James Polk is the only president never to have had children, not even by adoption, but it's far from his only claim to fame.Our 11th president is best known for expanding the nation's borders more than any other chief executive – by keeping campaign promises to annex Texas, settle a dispute with Britain over Oregon and acquire California from Mexico.His promises also included a pledge to retire from office in 1849 after a single four-year term.
Why, if your children are supposed to keep you young, are they so good at making you feel old?That was the question on my mind 20 years ago, when daughters Sarah and Debra were 11 and 9, while I was smarting from their description of a fender-bender we'd seen in Cerro Gordo that day.They told their dad one of the drivers, a gray-haired woman many years my senior, was a lady “about my age.” Nice, huh?
A dog in survival mode sees every human, even those trying to help, as a threat.Especially when there are lots and lots of them.That was the dilemma for people trying to catch a runaway Great Dane north of Decatur during one of the coldest winters on record: The longer the canine remained on the loose, the larger its social media following — and potential search party — grew.
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".
