It's somewhat ironic that Lady Gaga once again ranks as the Under 30 celebrity who earned the most money. This year the singer underwent something that is usually reserved for old people: hip surgery. But of course Gaga's injury wasn't caused by decaying bones and muscles. She had a labral tear likely from the intense dancing she does during her shows. And after her surgery the Mother Monster didn't just hide away to recover. She rolled out in a custom-made 24-karat gold plated wheelchair.
The first time I met Congressman Brad Sherman, it was a frustrating encounter. Soon after President Trump’s inauguration, Sherman invited a group of leaders from brand-new Indivisible groups to his favorite Sherman Oaks diner, Corky’s, for coffee and a chat. Most of us had been attracted to the Indivisible idea that in order to make change, you need to focus on the people who care most about your votes. But we were mostly novices to political activism.
I’ve recently taken up weightlifting. For me — that means straining to squat 120 lbs. I’m not setting any world records. But I am setting personal records on an almost weekly basis. At almost every session with my personal trainer (who is also my husband so free training!) I look at the weights and think, I can’t do this. And then I do. Because I’m stronger than I know. My body is capable of lifting way more weight that my mind thinks it’s capable of.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
