Florence and the Machine > Justin Bieber by a mile any day of the week. A lot of us have moral problems with Justin Bieber. Be it because of his attitude, his modern-day, one-man Backstreet Boys celebrity status or the fact he just assumes people like Anne Frank would automatically be fans of him if they were alive today, Justin rubs about 75 percent of the population the wrong way.
A Plus is looking to give you some early-week inspiration that will help you take charge of your future. We all have regrets. Regret is arguably the most essential part of the human experience. It’s a necessary component to emotional growth that drives you forward and reminds you what paths previously didn’t work. But, that information doesn’t make regret any easier to deal with. You may have learned from your past experience, but what led to that education probably stung.
After six seasons, “Girls” finally aired its last episode on Sunday night. HBO’s often-too-real chronicle of four girls living in Brooklyn with zero black friends will likely go down as one of the more controversial things to air on HBO that wasn’t just straight-up porn. Whether you liked the show or not, you appreciated it. You knew what it meant to have something on air with a creator like Lena Dunham at its helm, challenging and progressing the way millennial narratives were being told.
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".
