Ja Rule and Ashanti were a force to be reckoned with in the mid ’00s when Murder Inc. was at the top of its game. Led by the label’s cofounder Irv Gotti, the duo was often seen with fellow Inc. artists Charli Baltimore and Lloyd, and seemed unstoppable until the label’s fall in 2009. Ever since the label went south, the names that once dominated our radio waves disappeared into oblivion and the term Murder Inc. became reserved for “Hits of the 2000s” playlists.
If you don't celebrate your birthday during the summer, I know what you're thinking about people like me:Â You're so lucky you have a summer birthday! Sure, inflatable rafts, BBQs and bikinis sound marvelous, but in actuality, I'd really just like my birthday to be in October (well, any week except for Halloween week, that is). But okay, I get it, I can't complain because my date of birth does not fall onÂ one sole month.
The debut of Murad Skincare's new acne-fighting product certainly made a splash (literally). Yes, I set sail with the popular beauty brand last week at their Third Annual Spring Soirée as they launched a few new products from a yacht in Marina del Rey, California, just minutes from the Sweety High HQ! Let's yacht about it! Here are a few of our favorite moments from our Third Annual Spring Soirée.
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".
