In a ten-gallon hat, Cadillac button-down shirt, and weather-worn cowboy boots, Shayne Oliver looked like he was ready for the rodeo at the launch of Diesel ’s Red Tag Project last night. “Imagine I’m a car salesman and I’m selling denim,” said Oliver with a smile. Oliver is the first designer in a three-part series of collections to be made in collaboration with the Italian jeans giant.
1. To be a woman in charge takes grit and determination. “Like any woman, I face assumptions about who I am and what I can do. Women have to prove themselves more than men, have to fight to have their voice heard. Times have changed, and things are getting better for women. We can be all we want to be—I’m an artistic director, I’m a businesswoman, I’m a mother, I’m an advocate for change, and I’m a friend. I think in the 20th century, this was true.
Today, at Richard Quinn’s show in London, a very special guest appeared on the front row. The blue velvet cushion on her seat was a dead given away: the VIP was none other than Her Majesty the Queen. The crowd rose to their feet as the Queen entered the room dressed in one of her trademark eggshell-blue tweed skirt suits. Her Royal Highness was in attendance to present Quinn with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
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".
