Remember a few years back, when droves of ostensibly stylish adult women—fueled by a wave of Japanese nail art mania—started showing up for work with tiny green palm trees or, say, lacquered re-creations of the Mona Lisa painted on their fingertips? And suddenly asking one’s manicurist for “a reverse glitter tip nail on a Minx gold base” or a miniature portrait of Sade circa the Promise years on your pinky seemed like a totally reasonable request? I do.
“It’s always tricky, buying perfume for someone else,” says Frédéric Malle. As the architect behind Editions de Parfums—a collection of original scents created in collaboration with the world’s top noses—he appreciates the value of a beautifully crafted fragrance. Still, he insists, when it comes to gifting fragrance for the holidays, it’s not about playing it safe. “A lot of people give Chanel No.
Amidst the throes of cold and flu season that could strike fear into the hearts of the stalwart, you may be faced with an unfashionable dilemma: Do you brave the perils of doorknobs, elevator buttons, and taxi television screens with bouts of obsessive handwashing—or do you resort to on-the-go cleansing with a bottle of aesthetically challenged sanitizer (an offense on par with pulling a clear plastic sandwich bag filled with makeup from the depths of a Céline tote)?
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".
