1. It's not actually anything like Gossip Girl. Parties happen, but in two-bedroom apartments where you've convinced the deli to bring you beer. Themed masked balls do not ever happen. 2. Being terrified to drive once you finally get your license. At 18. Or 21. Or 25. 3. You have known since you were 10 that there is no way anyone on Friends could actually afford the apartments they lived in. Ditto for Carrie Bradshaw. 4. No, you have not been to the top of the Empire State Building.
Itâ€™s getting to be that time of year again: Rockefeller Center is decorating their tree, Duane Reade is finally selling the stockings theyâ€™ve been carrying since October, and the department stores are putting up their holiday window displays! The stores took their inspiration from all sorts of cultural hallmarks this year: Bendel presented a fashionable take on The Nutcracker, Barneys paid tribute to celebrity chefs, and Lord & Taylor took a more traditional Christmas-inspired approach.
1. People like to pat you on the head. What purpose does this serve? 2. They also really like to call you cute. It gets annoying fast. 4. Your pants cost $30 more than everyone else's because you have to get them hemmed. Also formal dresses and non-mini skirts. You're basically keeping your tailor in business. 5. You can't reach half the shelves in your apartment. Hope you have space for a small ladder. 6. Standing-room-only concerts are the worst. Oh, did you want to see Beyoncé perform? 7.
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".
