It’s harder than ever to avoid buying clothes that were made unethically.Â We’re living in a world of fast fashion, and to keep up with consumer demand for new trends every couple of months, clothing companies are producing more product than ever. But how do stores like H&M manage to sell their clothes for such cheap prices? How are designer labels able to mass produce some of their products so swiftly? Why are so few garments made in the US?
I’ve never been a makeup nut, but watching my mom apply her MAC makeup every morning growing up predisposed me to being drawn to high end makeup when I finally started wearing the stuff. Whether it was the MAC counter at a department store or a Sephora, spending over $30 on a foundation or over $15 on an eyeliner always seemed pretty reasonable. This also made it really easy for me to venture into the world of expensive skincare; if it costs more and you got it at a fancy shop, it’s better, right?
Let’s be real: Dysfunctional relationships are a form of entertainment. Your favorite TV shows–whether reality TV or some prestige drama–have a juicy dysfunctional relationship that you love to watch unfold. Whenever you’re scrolling through Twitter and stumble upon some random person’s relationship drama, you’re making sure you refresh your feed for new deets.
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".
