Toddlers know a thing or two about stress release says Rhiannon Evans, who’s not afraid to throw her toys out of the pram GRAZIA trend ￼Two months ago, I was at an outdoor wedding during a heatwave andI threw a tantrum. Shouting to absolutely nobody about how hot I was, I stomped my feet, angrily flapped my hands and ran from the group to throw myself on a nearby hay bale. There was no other name for it – I was having a full-blown toddler tanny. It wasn’t my first rodeo.
‘We’re just blessed, if it wasn’t for social media all of this could have been Katrina 2.0.’ So tweeted one Texan resident last week as the state faced historic ooding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. social media quickly became the de facto hub of a mammoth rescue operation. As 50,000 homes were submerged, Houston residents shared the addresses of loved ones facing rising (and alligator- infested) waters, urging them to hang sheets out of the window to signal they were still trapped.
Country music shouldn’t really apply to life in the UK: it used to be all big hair, rhinestones and cowboy boots (even on the guys). But then Nashville came along and changed our world. Suddenly we were in on the drama and the tensions, with a female-led drama pitting the pop-country Taylor Swift-esque career of Juliet Barnes (Hayden Pannettiere) against the Shania-like original Rayna James (Connie Britton).
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".
