“Tell” the world! Lauren Conrad gave birth to a baby boy, her first child with husband William Tell, on July 5. The Paper Crown designer (who recently dropped a maternity line for Kohl’s) announced her happy news via Instagram, sharing a needlepoint of her family — complete with a baby and two dogs — with the caption: “He’s here! We’re so excited to welcome Liam James Tell into the world!” (Liam is No. 37 on Nameberry’s Top 100 Most Popular Baby Names for Girls and for Boys for 2017!)
Shake it off, Democrats. Election Day 2014 was a rough one for President Barack Obama and his party, what with Republicans taking control of the Senate, but Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon helped lighten the mood late Tuesday, Nov. 4, with a soon-to-be-viral video of the Commander in Chief "singing" to Taylor Swift's newest smash single.
Don't confuse James Franco with the man he plays in Palo Alto. Unlike his character in that movie—a high school soccer coach who gets caught up in a flirtation with a student—the 36-year-old Of Mice and Men actor is not looking to date a teenager, despite his attempt to pick up 17-year-old Lucy Clode via Instagram last month. Speaking about the scandal in an interview on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday, April 30, Franco tried to clear the air about what really happened.
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".
