We need to talk about sex: consensual, naughty, often base, raucous and delicious sex! And perfunctory or drunken and a bit regretful sex (the familiarity and sad comfort of an ex-lover). Also, the kind that is ravenous and animalistic, with a stranger or a partner of many years, leaving you giggling in surprise. And not forgetting the shock, shyness or delight involved in virginal sexual fumbles. Or lustful guilt-laden urgent couplings, forbidden love that is devastatingly addictive.
In the US, Morgan Spurlock, director of the documentary hit Super Size Me, has just confessed to a history of sexual misconduct. He describes an encounter at college he says he thought of as consensual but which the woman concerned later called rape. “I thought I was doing OK … She believed she was raped,” he wrote in his blog this week. After further admissions, he posed the question: “What caused me to act this way?”Why men rape and sexually assault women is an urgent question for us all.
The best compliment to pay Meghan Markle on her style it that it is the least interesting thing about her. Not that she doesn’t have a keen eye. Classic and elegant, without relinquishing her brand of confident feminine sexiness (she caught a prince after all), her wardrobe also semaphores ambition and media acumen: this is a woman who realised that what she says is more important than the fabric of her skirt.
The detail that sticks from this sorry tale is that Michelle and Mark have the same agency looking after them; this is how imbedded sexism is - he deserved it; she didn’t, from the very people paid to promote their clients. https://twitter.com/thecut/status/952251786336796673
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".
