“This was my first time in drag out of the house,” is not a sentence one expects to hear from someone who was just cheered offstage by over 100 people, but Karen Isaacs walked away from an impromptu performance with a smile. She was one of the three audience members who volunteered to show off their best runway walk at Queen Esther’s Ball, while the next scheduled performer was changing. “It was just like a total high. It was so cool,” Isaacs said.
The Women’s March is known for two things; A lot of creative signs and the pussyhat. The hats became controversial. To some women, they fed into the idea that women are only useful as sex objects. They also reinforced the idea that the essence of womanhood is anatomical, something that excludes trans women and should make feminists uncomfortable. In fact, some of the organizers of the Women’s March won’t be wearing them this year because they worry they’re not inclusive.
Ohio State Representative Wes Goodman (R-Cardington) has resigned after someone informed the House Chief of Staff about an “inappropriate” incident between Goodman and another man in Goodman’s office. We know basically nothing about the incident. It could have been a kiss on the cheek or it could have been a mini-rave. There just aren’t many details available, which may be for the best. Even other lawmakers don’t know much about what happened between Goodman and this unidentified man.
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".
