Hilary Duff might be having an Internet renaissance right now, but if you were in middle school while Lizzie McGuire was on television, she likely served as your fashion awakening. Duff’s character, Lizzie, always went all-in on her looks. She changed her hair on the regular — crimps! accent braids! — and had more embellished jeans than there are days in a month. “I had no less than two sets of chopsticks in my hair at all times,” Duff jokes to Yahoo Style about her days being Lizzie.
“What are you looking at?” My boyfriend asks as we lay side by side in bed, both of our faces lit blue by the glow of our phones. “Nothing,” I say. “Just Instagram.”To actually explain to him what I’m looking at on Instagram would be complicated, embarrassing, more than a little pride-bruising.
Deering High School in Portland, Maine is reportedly the first high school in the country to provide Muslim student athletes with sport hijabs, and no one is more surprised they’re first as the Deering folks themselves. “We kind of figured we’d be first in the state of Maine, maybe even New England,” the school’s athletic director Melanie Craig tells Yahoo Style. But the first in the country? “We had absolutely no idea.
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".
