Nineties nostalgia is still an all-powerful force in fashion right now. From Tommy Hilfiger tees to Gap archives, brands are digging into their pasts to influence the future of fashion. Most recently on that list is throwback specialist Fila. The brand just launched an exclusive collection with Barneys New York and it is... inspirational. The collection is eight pieces in total, including a half-zip jacket, long-sleeve jacket, and a reimagined tennis shoe.
Pony sneakers are consistently damn good sneakers. The brand (which stands for Product of New York) launched in the '70s, and was made famous when Spud Webb famously won the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest in 1986 wearing a pair of them. Pony has held its roots in athletics—maintaining its minimalist, sleek fit—since then. And it's about to get better: The brand is dropping a new collection of shoes this fall.
Insider information about flying can be somewhat shrouded. Some of that secrecy exists to keep the pivotal information germane to the airline industry safe from terrorists and other ne'er-do-wells, but some of the trade secrets are only under wraps because they would probably enrage passengers, were the truth to come to light. We tapped two flight attendants (let's call them Elaine and Randy) who spilled all the secrets about flying under the condition of anonymity. Here's what they had to say.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
