Unsurprisingly, Korean culture has long held an obsession with beauty. The earliest mention of skincare regimes was documented in Korean literature as far back as 700BC. Today, there are whole streets dedicated to it – like Myeong-dong, a Seoul landmark akin to London’s Carnaby Street, but twice as busy and four times as long, where every shop has a beauty focus, from fun to high-end. But I did wonder if this latest craze was more of a generational thing.
Anita: Is the perfume what you thought it would be? Lazaro: It’s evolved so much over the course of the two years. But it’s got a lot of the kind of codes and adjectives that we were throwing around in the very beginning, so it still speaks to those same initial thoughts and ideas. Jack: I think it feels like a form of our initial idea. J: It’s evolved and been refined over time – it’s taken us two years.
In terms of greetings to be abjectly avoided, “You look tired,” is up there in the top rankings. The thing with looking tired is that it may have no obvious basis; you might feel full of beans, but your face is letting you down. It goes without saying that most of us would much rather look awake and refreshed, rather than mostly dead. And there’s good reason.
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".
