Ayanna had only been engaged for a month when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease she'd recently lost her mother to. But that didn't stop her from having a joyful life. "One of my really close friends once said that you have to meet yourself where you are sometimes," she told us. "Not every day is perfect, not every day is beautiful... Cancer has already done a ton of things to my life that suck, but I'm not going to allow it to make me unhappy."
The negative messages in our society about women are everywhere. It’s why we have this problem in the first place, it’s why we have this man in the white house who brags about sexually assaulting people, it’s why we have to have a Slutwalk. Do you try to shield Sebastian from these things in the news, or do you talk to him about it? "I don’t hide things from my son. He is only 4-years-old. But even still, I talk to him about a lot of things.
In a lot of ways, Amber Rose is our modern-day Lady Godiva. Both women are known for their legendary feminine powers, and they both bare all for a cause — it’s just that instead of lower taxes for peasants, Rose’s cause is centering women’s sexuality. Instead of a noble lady with long, flowing hair and a horse, Rose is our bald-headed scallywag in a pink chrome Jeep. As a model, actress, and entrepreneur, Rose could easily just focus on doing her job and watch the money roll in.
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".
