So you’ve grown out your beard and mustache this month to support a better awareness of men’s health — but Movember is more than half over and you’re starting to look, well, scruffy. How can you ensure this new look of yours is presentable this holiday? We talked to Alex Masi, senior hair stylist and barber at Le Reve Salon & Barbershop in Cherry Hill, for grooming tips. A lot of guys come in with mustaches that grow over the lip, Massi said. That’s just wrong (not to mention gross.)
I’m a shopper who picks up her chunky sweaters from Target and her skinny trousers from Kohl’s while on the hunt for detergent and cat litter. But last Thursday when I entered Kin — a 700-square-foot women’s clothing store at 1014 Pine St. designed to look like a walk-in closet — I knew there was no way I was leaving empty-handed.
I wasn’t as worked up as my friendly shallow internet drama queens Wednesday morning when I peeped the entertainment news that country singer and judge of NBC’s The Voice was anointed People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. Admittedly Shelton is no Idris Elba — it’s an absolute sin that that perfect specimen of a man has yet to win People’s top hunk award.
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".
