In her room, Balqees lounges on her bed and plays with her phone. Other than the rumpled bedsheets, the only thing out of place is a millennial-pink baseball cap on the floor. “I’m always in my room,” the 16-year-old said. “I’ve been in here for three days straight, except yesterday I went to McDonald’s to buy ice-cream.
This November, when I took a gander at the fancy ornaments I plan to buy at 70% off in January, the volume and variety of food ornaments astounded me. There was a package of bacon, still apparently in its shrink wrap; an ice cream bar with a bite taken out of it; and even a deviled egg. On one level, it made sense: for as long as there have been Christmas trees in the US, food has been placed, strung, or hung in various decorative contortions amongst the branches.
In this special Pretty Hurts series, the Cut explores women’s complicated relationships to beauty standards and the efforts required to meet them. Nora Ephron didn’t just feel bad about her neck. She called breasts, or her lack of them, “the hang-up of my life.” In a 1972 Esquire essay, she wrote, “If I had had them, I would have been a completely different person.
@EmilyGould I'm well aware of her name. She's a writer I like and admire. I thought it would be preferable not to name her in a tweet so that her name is searchable in that way. I have genuine sympathy for her.. Not sure why you're the judge of how sympathetic I am, but w/e.
@EmilyGould the public punishment that sticks to women largely sticks to victims of "bad" men. surely, women involved with bad men also face public stigmatization. but isn't that on the man and his behavior, not on the people outing him?
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".
