In a fashion battle between Taylor Swift and Michelle Obama, one would assume the bright, sparkly uber-celebrity would take the cake. Sure, the first lady is one of the most fashionable women to ever occupy the White House. But she's also, like, a mom. But against all odds, FLOTUS blew T-Swift out of the water -- er, slime -- at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday night. Michelle was on hand with Sasha and Malia to award Swift Nickelodeon's Big Help Award, recognizing her charitable work.
For every Kate Moss, there's dozens of little girls who want to be her (and even a summer camp that's ready to teach them how). But Cameron Russell, a model who's walked the runway for Chanel and posed for magazines like Vogue, is ready to tell young women that modeling is not all it's cracked up to be. In fact, it might not be worth doing at all. Russell, an 8-year industry veteran, gave a refreshingly frank Ted Talk as part of TEDxMidAtlantic 2012: BE FEARLESS.
Like many female tennis stars, Maria Sharapova is known not only for her skills on the court but for her stunning off-duty looks, too. Her most notable feature? That shiny blonde hair, which she's worn long and straight for a decade. But with her 25th birthday approaching this Thursday, perhaps the tennis pro was in the mood for change. Today Maria posted a note on her Facebook page: "But notice anything different with my hair? Hmmm..." along with two dramatic pics.
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".
