Beverley Rice was lonely. She had a big career as a painter, tons of friends, and a penthouse apartment in Greenwich Village. But after a brief marriage in her 30s, she had spent the next few years attracted to "liars and psychopaths," she says, only half-jokingly. Therapy had helped her make some serious shifts in the past, most notably to quit bingeing. Still, she couldn't crack the love thing. Eventually, she hit a breaking point.
He paused and lowered his voice. “‘I want to come in for a penis augmentation,’” he whispered. “They want a man to answer the phone,” he said. “They want to sit next to a guy, they want to watch sports on TV and not listen to Michael Bublé on the radio.”Possibly he’s on to something. About 8 to 10 percent of plastic surgery procedures across the country are performed on men, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Liposuction and tummy tucks are the top two procedures.
There is also little social support for bereaved siblings. A 2010 study in the Journal of Paediatrics & Child Health of 109 major pediatric hospitals in the United States and Canada found that only 48 percent provided sibling support. A 2014 study of young adults who lost siblings to cancer found that most were still grieving two to nine years later. Beyond the lifestyle changes and the terror of the unknown, the healthy sibling’s role in the family shifts.
Quote of today from my 18 year old friend, who just broke up with her boyfriend--in part because she wasn't comfortable with how fast he wanted to move physically. "I don't feel like getting pregnant. It's not on my to-do list." #feminism#Imwithher
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".
