My scheduled in-person interview with Amanda Feilding got bumped so she could go to dinner with an old family friend: Sean Lennon. When she very politely canceled in her warbly, Mrs. Doubtfire-esque voice, I bought the international plan from my cell carrier so we could chat upon her return to the UK. A LOT of people interview Amanda. She is fascinating. I tried to learn and share some things about her I hadn’t already read, but her life is long and her saga epic.
Talkin’ With Drug Policy Reformer Ethan Nadelmann I had the amazing privilege of speaking with Dr. Ethan Nadelmann for this piece in THC Mag. Nadelmann has since moved on as the head of the Drug Policy Alliance after many years of battering down the drug prohibition door, but his spirit remains in the battle to overcome the opioid crisis, craft policies that mitigate harmful practices, and help restore communities disproportionately affected by the War on Drugs.
Eating disorders — or at least disordered eating — have occupied a disproportionate amount of mental real estate for me. As an actress and dancer for more than 30 years, the constant worry about my body being on display in tiny costumes in front of thousands clung to me as I munched veggies, ate fruit, and felt guilty about eating three french fries. Twice I dieted on 500 calories a day for a month so I could look skinny for a photo and commercial shoot.
@DonaldJTrumpJr@realDonaldTrump Oh hey, Mr. Chinless Mouth Breather. Your pops only gives relief to porn stars, right, Mr. Tiny Hands? Let's put this in perspective. You d nozzles spend 1000 on dinner. You continue to rip money out of the hands of Americans busting their asses. Go get a chin implant, will ya?
@realDonaldTrump Oh hey Mr. Tiny Hands. I got a quick question, you can get back to your bedburger lickety split. Pray tell, if Wolff is such a liar liar pants on fire, why the cease and desist? And do dip the fries in the shake, delish. #sad
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".
