Getty Images It is a Saturday morning and I am woken by my husband stroking my face. We have been married for over 10 years and he has never done this before. It is an unexpectedly romantic gesture. He must be feeling amorous. The kids are watching YouTube, we won’t hear a peep out of them for at least half an hour. The sun is shining... ‘Hi,’ I say.Mike doesn’t reply.
In Wonder Woman, Princess Diana (not that one) saves the world from the violent excesses of male greed and aggression using the power of her beautiful thighs and glorious biceps. The recent remake has been a huge and unexpected hit, with its feminist agenda (the Chris Pine character is the pretty one who needs saving), viscerally exciting action sequences and super-hot yet also funny, clever and compassionate heroine. Men want to be wrestled to the ground by her; women want to be her.
Jayne Wallace, psychic to the stars, and the only medium in the world with her own concession in a department store, is whispering to me, so it’s hard to work out what she’s saying. ‘He’s off the toilet.’‘Your dad. He wants me to tell you he’s off the toilet.’We are in her booth, in the basement of Selfridges, just next to the children’s books section. It is lined with grey crushed velvet, and a cheap chandelier with plastic drops hangs from the ceiling.
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".
