We thought we’d seen some creative bachelorette parties, but this might be the best idea yet. One bride-to-be had her bachelorette party at Coachella, and it looks like it was so much fun. Aisha Amjad is set to marry her fiancé Prasid next March, and, as her friends know, she LOVES music festivals. The bridesmaids, plus 20 other friends, threw a pool party at a rental house, as well as attended the festival itself. Aisha’s fiancé stopped by the party, and we can’t blame him.
Much of the East Coast and Midwest saw snowstorms last week, and while many of us stayed inside with a cup of hot cocoa, one body positivity blogger decided to go outside IN A BIKINI. We're seriously in awe. Leah lives in Vermont, and her photo looks epic. And people agreed.
McDonald's lovers, we've got great news: McDonald's is launching three new coffee drinks, and we can't wait to try them all. Additionally, if you're lucky, you might just get to try them early. That means you'll have more coffee choices to decide between, whether you're pairing your coffee with a hash brown or a McMuffin.
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".
