The examples in pop culture are endless. You don’t have to look far to find a TV show, movie or book with a woman character who shops excessively, spends excessively, is buried in credit card debt or all of the above. It’s so pervasive that as a society, we’ve come to think those depictions are art imitating life, but that’s not the case. Women are not genetically wired to be bad with money, just like men are not wired to be good with money.
It’s a truism often repeated that the Bible talks about money more than it talks about any other single subject. That’s sort of true, if you’re willing to group talk about care for the poor and generosity under a big umbrella labeled “MONEY.” Just because the Bible talks about it a lot doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the most important thing in the Bible, but it clearly is at least kind of important. Money matters to God because money matters to us, and we matter to God.
I recently overheard two women discussing their fantasy boyfriends over coffee. They were chatting about their favorite celebrities: analyzing their “hotness,” what they love about them, why they would make amazing boyfriends and how amazing it would be to meet them face to face. A while back on the news, I listened to reporters praise a teenager for asking his Sports Illustrated supermodel crush (who was probably his mom’s age) to come with him to prom. How brave and courageous of him, they said.
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".
