This is not your grandmother’s Tupperware party. India Hicks is working hard to change the image of the at-home direct-sales business model. “I looked at the wholesale and retail markets, and I felt they were fairly broken,” Hicks tells me in the video above. “I felt the landscape was shifting and was intrigued by the idea of going back into the heart of the home [to sell].”The 49-year-old author and former model brings an aristocratic flair to her eponymous lifestyle brand, which launched in 2015.
Twitter may be the communication method of choice for US President Donald Trump, but not every powerful business leader has embraced the social media platform with quite the same gusto. Take Lloyd Blankfein, for instance. The CEO of Goldman Sachs joined Twitter back in 2011. It only took him six years to post his very first tweet and, ironically, it was in response to Trump pulling the US out of the Paris climate accord on June 1.
The historic Santana drum set that Michael Shrieve played at the 1969 Woodstock festival was one of the priciest items sold on May 20 at the “Music Icons 2017” auction at New York City’s Hard Rock Café.

Other rock-related collectibles included John Lennon’s original sketch for the album cover of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
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".
