I have been a lot of things in life. I started out as an artist when I broke from the stick figure form in elementary school. Then I specialized as a manga artist for my middle school years. I flirted with fashion design before taking an interest in psychology. From there I realized that biology ...

As world leaders convene in the Paris summit to discuss ways to curtail climate change, you might be resting easy, thinking that you’re doing enough to save the environment by driving a hybrid and recycling. But did you ever stop and think about the carbon footprint of sending an email? Or reading this article on your device? It’s a bitter realization that pretty much everything we do that requires power leaves a carbon footprint.
A big misconception about sexual assault and sexual assault survivors is that fighting back is the “normal” and “natural” response to such a brutal, traumatic event. But many survivors don’t fight off their attackers, or put up much resistance at all — and the reason they don’t fight back may be because they can’t, according to a new study in the journal Acta Obstetrica et Gynecologica Scandinavica.
Sometimes fighting for their integrity can cost journalists their jobs. And that's what Michael Balter-a science reporter and longtime correspondent for Science magazine-thinks happened to him. In a Skype interview with the Daily Dot, Balter described his firing from Science as a surprise.
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".
