There are those of us who, on a good day, can touch our toes (without bending our knees). And then there’s Olga Karmansky , a rhythmic gymnast turned professional contortionist whose body bends, moves, and balances in ways best described as jaw-dropping. But make no mistake about it: That doesn’t mean all things come easy to Karmansky. The athlete, who we filmed in partnership with MUSCLE MILK® , has run into her share of haters.
The frazzled, overwrought mom. The mom who has everything together and smiles through the whole thing. The helicopter mom who lives only for her kids. We constantly see these stock-standard portrayals of motherhood, so much, in fact, that we start to question if there’s something weird about us being more complex, more nuanced, and more flat-out real.
If you don’t recognize the name Ibtihaj Muhammad , you likely know the sabre fencer for her barrier-breaking accomplishments. This summer, Muhammad became the first Muslim-American woman to compete in the Olympic Games while wearing a hijab. Oh, and — NBD — she walked away with a bronze medal. Now, thanks to her mental tenacity, unwavering commitment, and physical prowess, we’ve joined forces with MUSCLE MILK® to see Muhammad’s many forms of strength come to life.
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".
