Serious makeup lovers know there’s nothing quite like walking into Sephora and being greeted by the sight of rows and rows of perfectly placed beauty displays. It’s just like a candy store, except everything is brighter and much, more expensive. And not edible, of course. That’s why, if you’re a beauty fanatic, you really should look away now. Because one such display was destroyed in mere moments by an unaccompanied child.
It’s a dilemma every parent has faced: you’re out in public with your child, who suddenly declares they need to go to the bathroom. For mothers, the solution is fairly simple, no matter the gender of their child: they can accompany their child into the ladies’ room and supervise as they do their business. But for fathers, especially those with young daughters, the decision is much more tricky: do they take their daughter into the men’s room, or accompany her into the ladies’?
It was meant to be easy for Sophie Monk after she appeared on the latest season of The Bachelorette. She was meant to have picked her dream man, presented him to the nation as ‘The One’ and enjoyed a life of magazine photo shoots and coupled-up Instagram selfies. But that’s not quite how things worked out for the 37-year-old actress, model, singer and presenter: her relationship with 44-year-old Stu Laundy was questioned by the public right from the word ‘go’.
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".
