The rap sheet against Harvey Weinstein continues to mount following a second investigation on the Hollywood mogul’s sexual misconduct, published this morning by The New Yorker. Over the course of 10 months, journalist Ronan Farrow spoke to women who shared stories that both corroborate the harassment reported by the New York Times last week and include allegations of sexual assault and rape.
Every now and then you read a book that changes you. You aren’t the same person you were when you started reading it, and you won’t be again. For me, Roxane Gay’s Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, is one of those books. “Every body has a history” she writes in the first chapter, which, comprising a scant 21 words, gets directly to the point.
By equating thinness with beauty, this “body-positive” movie for little girls completely misses its own point. Now that my six-year-old can read, I find myself answering a lot of questions about slogans on billboards as we walk through downtown Toronto. I often steer her path so that ones that require particularly sticky explanations (“Why is that woman on her back in her underwear? Is she hurt?”) remain out of sight.
Panic sums it up. I cannot understand why an after-school rec program that is deemed safe for my kid for 3 days a week, isn't safe for 5. Way to make life a lot harder for parents, @ONgov. https://t.co/qq62e6GSAn
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".
