There’s nothing more mortifying, and annoying, than walking into a room and spotting someone wearing the exact same thing as you. You want to laugh it off and joke about having the same taste, but that red-faced embarrassment is kind of hard to avoid, especially when everyone else begins to notice and point it out too. Now imagine that six times over. At a wedding. Because that’s exactly what happened at a recent ceremony in Sydney, Australia.
As a mother, there’s something about children that brings out a certain fire, that protective mother bear that may have been scratchingÂ at the surface or buried deep within. We will do whatever it takes to make sure our kids are taken care of and, perhaps more importantly, can take care of themselves. When it comes to having a daughter, those feelings often intensify.
As you’re already aware, the Duchess of Cambridge is passionate about increasing awareness for mental health issues. As you may also be aware, Kate doesn’t really love to speak publicly. It may be part of her increasing royal duties, but it’s never been something she’s been comfortable with. And that makes her latest appearance all the more meaningful. Because not only does she voluntarily step in front of the camera, but she has a few important things to say.
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".
