Books can be like a best friend. We love memoirs that make us think. We reach for short story collections when we need a quick read. And don’t forget about the poetry collections that make us feel all the feels. But sometimes, we’re in the mood for a quicker, more visual read. This list of unique titles will have you making a beeline for the bookstore. Some are humorous self-help books, some are photography books, and some are children’s books. One of them even glows in the dark!
Happy September! Even though the first day of fall isnâ€™t technically until later this month, weâ€™re already feeling the season start to change. Fortunately, Demi Lovatoâ€™s hairstylist just revealed fallâ€™s biggest hair trends. And theyâ€™re SO good. Change is in the air. Itâ€™s pumpkin spice latte season at Starbucks. Weâ€™re rolling out our fall wardrobes, swapping sundresses for sweaters. Itâ€™s only natural that we switch up our hair too. And it looks like way shorter hair is here to stay.
Avril Lavigne fans rejoice: The wait for her new music is almost over. Lavigne just shared an update on her new album, and itâ€™s definitely going to be a big change from her angsty â€œSk8er Boiâ€? days. We canâ€™t wait! Earlier this year, Lavigne released a song with Ashley Tisdale called â€œTrophy Boy.â€? Sheâ€™s also been the subject of many doppelganger jokes and conspiracy theories. But Lavigne is ready for an official comeback, and so are we.
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".
