Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow debuted the first item in her new Goop-label clothing line, and as happens whenever Goop releases something high-profile, her efforts were greeted with excitement by some, mockery by others. The first outfit in the collection is pretty standard Gwyneth, a conservative classic with a twist: a chambray button-down shirt and a white tote, and a gray tweed suit with a tie-belt and culotte-cut pants.
Everything seems normal as we approach American Apparel's seven-story factory and corporate headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. I'm riding shotgun next to CEO Paula Schneider in her slightly worn electric Ford Fusion, '80s music jamming quietly from the speakers. We park and enter the light and orderly American Apparel shop on the ground floor.
Facebook Groups are about to become a lot easier to find. The social network has begun piloting a new Groups Discover tool, which makes it easier for users to find new Groups to join, based on their interests. The new feature is rolling out on iOS and Android in the U.S.
It's not easy to catch the fashion world off guard. But when Zac Posen announced two years ago that he was signing on as the creative director of women's wear at Brooks Brothers, one of America's oldest retailers, he raised more than a few well-groomed eyebrows.
Two years ago, model Karlie Kloss enrolled in Flatiron School's two-week pre-college coding course and caught the programming bug. She started taking regular private coding classes with Flatiron dean and cofounder Avi Flombaum (who she already knew socially) and enjoyed the experience so much that she decided to underwrite 21 Kode with Karlie scholarships so other young women could take the same two-week pre-college coding course at Flatiron that had kicked off her own programming education.
Because you're not getting enough horserace coverage from the media as it is. Google has made the Great American Horserace a little more interactive. I was pretty worried that we weren't getting enough minute-by-minute horserace coverage from the media, so I'm quite relieved that this was made.
Today, Mark Zuckerberg published a lengthy opinion article in The Times Of India defending his attempt to connect millions of people to the Internet via a suite of Facebook-approved apps. It's called Free Basics, and the service lets people with feature phones and other devices access online services without paying data charges.
As you are most certainly aware, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump recently suggested that Muslims be banned from entering the United States for a while. In this country, that kind of talk is not illegal - we're protected by the First Amendment, which guarantees our right to free speech, to give voice to whatever we might believe to be true or wise.
During tonight's Republican primary debate, world-class demagogue rhetorician Donald Trump said America should shut off ISIS's access to the Internet-the terror network is disturbingly successful at spreading its propaganda and recruiting via social media. But how practical is Trump's suggestion? Indeed, there are countries that have cut off access to the Internet to their citizens.
A few nights ago, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump created an uproar ( and received some applause) when he suggested Muslims should be banned from entering the United States. Even without The Donald's demagoguery, this isn't an easy period for Muslim-Americans.
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
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".
