It was 11 a.m. on a sunny Saturday. I had been dancing at Berghain, the mega club, for five hours, and time had disappeared, as it always does in Berlin . It was mid-April, and the city was beginning to recover from its endless winter and come alive again. I emerged from the club with a couple friends, plus two DJs we met along the way. We were starving, and the question of where to eat gained urgency. But the suggestion that followed signaled a shift in the city I knew. “Daluma?” offered my friend.
In the ever-turning merry go round of fashion trends, few brands have weathered the test of time quite like Birkenstock , which is celebrating its 243rd year as the be-all and end-all comfort shoe that never seems to go out of style. The iconic slip-on has been a staple in fashion’s mainstream every decade—be it on the barefoot hippies of the '60s or the grungy flannel-wearing kids of the '90s.
The moment Nicholas Hoult read the script for Rebel in the Rye, he was determined to nab the lead role of J.D. Salinger. “I was so moved by the story, and the things that he stood for,” Hoult said of playing the notoriously elusive writer in Danny Strong's biopic of the elusive writer, in theaters Friday. Shot in New York over a course of just 26 days, the film chronicles Salinger’s rise to fame and early self-imposed retirement.
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".
