True confession. I don’t love lingerie. Okay, I have a bit of a thing for lace bras, but most underwear fail me. They never fit very well, probably because I’m precisely between a medium and a large. (Why aren’t underwear made to match pant sizes? I really don’t get this.) Lingerie in general I find is out to save your marriage or steal somebody’s man or make you believe that you’re more French, none of which appeals to me.
Gwyneth Paltrow shared a story once, I think it might have been on The Ellen Show. She recalled being stopped at a red light somewhere around the time she turned 40. A car had pulled up beside her and a handsome guy was the driver. She expected that maybe they were going to lock eyes for a second, that maybe he was going to give her an appreciative glance or something like that, like she was used to. But he didn’t. He just looked right past her, like she was invisible.
Somewhere along the line my bag game went on a losing streak. I think it began after I had my son, almost four years ago, when I replaced my Balenciaga-by-way-of-Alexander-Wang satchel with a Gucci diaper bag. It was black, with a subtle double-G monogram and signature green and red striped handle. It was stylish as shit while he was a babe, but not so much when I continued to carry it to work at a fashion magazine well after my maternity leave.
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".
