Another day, another Dolce & Gabbana controversy. Ruffling feathers seems to be the luxurious Italian fashion label’s modus operandi for some time now. Take the time they referred to children conceived through IVF as "synthetic" or when they labeled a pair of shoes as "slave sandals," littered their collection with dated and racist imagery of black women and released a sneaker with "thin and gorgeous" scribbled on the side. It’s clear that D&G could use a refresher course on sensitivity ASAP.
Since Trump took over the White House, there has been a slew of people complaining of anxiety and depression triggered by the elections. Therapists are calling it Post-election Stress Disorder and they are seeing a rise in patients. Good thing Los-Angeles-based writer/director Sam Friedlander (@samcf) has found a cure. Impeachara is the new "drug" that will help you cope with the next four years by convincing you that Trump has been impeached thus quelling your debilitating fear and anger.
Did you know that 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps' arms are longer ( 6 feet, 8 inches) than he is tall, that his lungs are double the size of a normal person's and that his ankles bend in such unnatural ways that his feet have been called "virtual flippers?" If there was any doubt that the 31-year-old retired swimmer is, in fact, superhuman, his latest race will put it to rest: Phelps will come out of retirement to race – wait for it – a great white shark!
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
