Want to know a secret? Â My dream as a blogger is to expand my platform into a destination for millennials who want to give back. Â To me, there is nothing greater than living a life of service and as my platform grows, I’m on a mission to continue incorporating giving back into my posts. Â Last week, I was invited AS AN INFLUENCER to the United Nations to attend their Oceans Conference. Â (Have to give a special shoutout to THB Marketing House and SDG Media Zone for making this happen!)
Backstage at a New York Fashion Week show is usually a flurry of chaos: make up artists touching up models's faces, hair spray clouding the air, and stage coordinators frantically yelling. But find yourself backstage at one of Anniesa Hasibuan's shows, and you see models casually milling around, eating from an assortment of sandwiches, patiently waiting for a final run-through.
Over the weekend, 19-year-old Halima Aden made history when she became the first contestant to wear a hijab and burkini while competing in the Miss Minnesota U.S.A. pageant. According to Minneapolis NBC affiliate KARE-11, Aden was 1 of 45 women to compete in the pageant, and officials embraced her decision to wear a hijab during all pageant rounds, as well as to remain fully covered during the swimsuit portion of the event.
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".
