Over in the United Kingdom, Medical Detection Dogs are said to be able to sniff out cancer and other serious diseases in humans. Now, meet the bra that can also ostensibly do just that — or will be able to, at least at some point, as The Thirty points out. A group of scientists at Colombia’s National University are creating an over-the-shoulder boulder holder (sorry, Bette Midler ) that comes with infra-red censors that should detect any abnormalities.
Kim Kardashian entered the beauty biz with a bang on Wednesday, launching her line, KKW Beauty, with just one product, the $48 dollar Crème Contour and Highlight Kit. The line sold out within an hour, raking in an estimated $14.4 million. This is nothing new for the Kardashian clan — youngest sister Kylie Jenner’s lip kits and various other palettes regularly sell out. And Kardashian tells Yahoo Beauty that she was prepared. “I want it to be available.
Lena Dunham, I get you. Now more than ever. One balmy summer afternoon, my husband and I were eating burgers outside at J.G. Melon, a meaty institution on the Upper East Side in New York. Our dog Buster was tied to a tree nearby, marginally content, glaring at his surroundings, malevolent as ever. And then — four kids (parents nowhere in sight) descended on Buster, screeching, petting, hugging, grabbing. My husband and I were literally frozen, unable to move or speak, waiting for the inevitable.
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".
