When I was sixteen years old my best friend was an edgy, artsy “new” girl who had come to our small Catholic high school from the big city. This one day, we were in the bathroom and she said from inside the stall, “Do you ever, you know, touch yourself?”And I was like: “Ugh, god no.”I didn’t even know why I was lying. She was basically admitting to me that she did it…and was clearly testing out my feelings on the subject.
When I was growing up, you didnâ€™t think about it, let alone talk about it, let alone look at it. In fact, your doctor, your boyfriend or your quirky best girlfriend probably had more face time with it than you. But nowadays you can vagazzal it, vacacial it, rejuvenate and reconstruct it. Gwyneth Paltrow told the world that she had hers steamed like it was a dumpling. And the latest trend? Vaginal â€œcontouringâ€? (donâ€™t, k? just donâ€™t).
The other day, we were in the car, sitting at a stoplight and Jason pointed out the absurd amount of pigeons loitering around on the top of a plaza. After I got over my Hitchcock-inspired terror, I wondered aloud:Me: “What in the hell do you think they’re doing?” Jason: “No idea. Imagine…you are a bird.
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".
