Since her appointment as Secretary of Education in the Trump administration, the evidence that perhaps Betsy DeVos is not the best person to steward the future of America’s youth has been apparent. After all, it was only a few short months ago when the Department of Education, which she runs, misspelled the name of NAACP co-founder W.E.B. Du Bois in a tweet. Then to make matters worse, they also misspelled the subsequent apology.
We should be mindful of what we put on our body as we are of what put inside of it. Parabens, phthalates, and sulfates are some of the toxic compounds that we should avoid. They not only harm us but they also harm the earth. Plus, with all the sophisticated, chic packaging around and superior-quality sustainable ingredients that actually deliver, being green no longer means we have to settle for natural beauty goods of a lesser variety.
Who would have ever considered combining yoga and hip-hop? Atlanta native Jaimee Ratliff did and the result has been incredible. The certified yoga instructor has boldly infused the 5,000-year-old spiritual practice with hip-hop and created a class that has students twerking during down-ward facing dog and pop locking into child pose.
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".
