It’s not unusual for a life to head in one direction and then something else in a completely different direction is the end-result. The journey is hardly ever a straight line. Life is like that, ya’know. Let’s just say a young man takes a great interest in tattoos. So much so that, at an early age, he knows he wants to lay ink just under the human skin in an artistic way Many items come into play here.
The use of the word in the headline was intentional. Aren’t we all just a bit tired of making resolutions that within a few weeks, we have already chosen to disregard? We are better than that, although to this point it’s a tough truism to believe. Bad habits take a long time to become ingrained and then we choose a fault or two, swearing by all that is holy that we are going to improve errant behavior.
By their very nature, holidays are different from average, run-of-the-mill weekdays. Holidays are special with themes, more chances for out-of-the-ordinary events, and they put a spring in all our steps. Through no accident, New Orleans manages to squeeze in more holidays, more play-time, than just about any other community in the region. Okay, in America. All right already, on the planet. Everyone everywhere enjoys Christmas, New Year’s, Easter, Fourth of July.
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".
