This week in Bachelor Nation is typically "fantasy suite" week, where the Bachelorette takes each of her horny suitors on one-on-one dates and then they are finally allowed to fornicate if both parties consent. After nine weeks of Bryan's horrifying, sloppy kisses, I'm certainly ready for the contestants to just get it over with already. But Rachel introduces a twist! Instead of inviting the men to sex, she invites them to meet her family in Dallas, Texas.
The EMW Women's Surgical Center, the last remaining abortion clinic in Kentucky, is bracing itself for one of its biggest battles yet. On Saturday, anti-abortion zealots from all over the country, organized by an extremist Christian group called Operation Save America (OSA), will descend on the clinic for a week-long protest, coordinating with churches in the area. The anti-abortion group has explicitly said their aims are to "shut down" the clinic and block patients from entering the facility.
Earlier this week, photos of the Instagram model Sarah Stage went viral. They seemed like standard fitspo selfies: In one, Stage, impeccably contoured, is posed in front of a mirror in a bikini, her stomach flat and toned. But the hashtags on the post indicated that she was "#6monthspregnant." What? Reflexively trying to make sense of the image an caption, my first thought was that this woman is a very powerful witch.
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".
