Dressed in black and taking no nonsense on the red carpet, the women of Hollywood sent a clear message at Sunday’s Golden Globes that sexual assault and harassment, misogyny and pay inequality will not be tolerated. No one used the platform with as much force as Oprah Winfrey, who delivered an awe-inspiring speech after accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. Watch it, in full, above. Below, some of the most touching parts of Winfrey’s speech.
These days, you don’t often hear grown-ups using the “small penis” insult — as in, that guy is such a jerk, he probably has a small penis. And you especially don’t hear wives of former Canadian prime ministers whipping out the p-word in a public forum. But that’s just what Laureen Harper did on Twitter Wednesday after she saw a story about TV host Steve Ecklund having killed a cougar in Alberta. “What a creep,” tweeted Harper.
Without question, bobs have become the cut of the season. Everyone from Selena Gomez to Cate Blanchett has been sporting above-the-shoulder chops, as you can see in this gallery of celebs with the style. But, as we learned from Meryl Streep’s soliloquy on cerulean blue in The Devil Wears Prada, trends don’t just pop out of nowhere. There’s a reason, an inspiration, behind every single one of them. And, friends, the inspiration behind this year’s bob is a bit of a shocker.
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".
