They say our hair is the one characteristic nowadays that best defines us. Thanks to the eccentric millennials of today, expressing ourselves with our dos of choice has not only become second nature, but also culturally accepted. One public figure all about the movement is sociopolitical funnyman W. Kamau Bell. Who is Bell? Some may know him best for adding his political humor to the comedy scene in San Francisco, also being voted the city’s best comedian by SF Weekly.
Beards throughout history have always been the earmark on what separates the boys from the men. If you think about it, most iconic figures or faces to remember sported some sort of facial fur at one point or another from Jesus himself to Abraham Lincoln to Mr. T. Fast-forward to the modern day and it’s still they’re still popular in demand. Why are so many of today's dudes so about growing beards? Studies have shown beards to be a sign of strength and dominance.
Coffee is a must. It’s the quick picker-upper we rely on day in, day out to survive our 9 to 5s. Not to mention it’s the stimulant that pushes our creative thinking forward, fuels our muscles at the gym, and keeps us at low risk of heart disease. Only a rich and well-ground cup earns us these perks. But that’s not something your common Keurig can make. The coffee experience begins with grinding down your java of choice. That’s why you need a coffee grinder.
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".
