Being in a relationship where you are loved and supported is pretty rad. But as much as many of us would love to experience that, we need to abandon the idea that we need it. We have to stop settling for terrible relationships just to say that we’re in one. For some reason, many of us have made our relationship status into an expression of our worthiness, when being single or taken has nothing to do with who we are as people. Well, it’s time for us to stop.
There is a complete double standard in our understanding of male reproductive organs versus female ones. Maybe it’s easy to write off our body parts as too complex and our peaks as matters of chance, but the reality is this: my box isn’t complicated, and neither is yours. But do you know what is complicated? All of the crazy rumors that seem to surround our lady bits based on what other people — largely men — seem to think they know about a woman’s body.
As I am staring at the models and brand ambassadors for Revlon’s spring beauty campaign. I’m struck by how revolutionary they are. I’m at Skylight Modern in midtown Manhattan, where the campaign launch party is taking place, and they are standing on-stage against a backdrop that reads “LIVE BOLDLY” in proud capital letters. Some of their names — Gal Gadot, Ashley Graham — are familiar to me, however, these women were selected for more than just their celebrity.
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".
