"I'm wanted, I'm hot, I'm everything you're not. I'm pretty, I'm cool, I dominate this school, Who am I? Just guess…"So, you may know that song from Bring It On,Â and yep, they're cheerleaders.ÂCheerleaders have always been glamorized as the pretty, popular girls in high school, who have tons of friends, get invited to parties and have boyfriends, thanks to the movie mentioned above.Â And for me, it was for this very reason that I joined cheerleading… to be popular.
Sure, being a cheer captain looks like all high ponytails, short pleated skirts, game days and pom poms—but anyone who has actually held this coveted position knows it takes a whole lotta work. You must have strength to throw girls your same size in the air, have dance skills, precision, flexibility, a good memory, gymnastic skills and stamina to last through a triple-overtime football game. So you better believe it takes a certain type of person to lead the entire cheer squad and be captain.
A good pair of PJs can be a total game-changer. We like them cute (obvi), super soft and fashionable enough to run in and grab takeout or wear to your BFFs sleepover. With fall approaching, the days are getting shorter and our TV binge-watching longer, so we've rounded up the cutest loungewear to shop RN. Nothing says TV marathon quite like a midnight snack. This adorable midnight snacks set from Forever 21 has us hungry just looking at it.
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".
