With the holiday season already upon us, President Donald Trump has launched a new seasonal version of his classic "Make America Great Again" hats. Trump has released holiday versions of his hats before. In October, we got to see the Halloween-themed hat. And back in March, Trump's online store released the St. Patrick's Day hat.
When we saw that Tesla CEO Elon Musk was selling the "world's most boring hat" to help fundraise his new tunnel-digging company, we were unsure whether it would be successful or not. After all, it truly lived up to its name, simply featuring "The Boring Company" branded on the front and nothing else. It turns out the hat fundraiser managed to rake in $300,000 for Musk's company, according to CNBC. CNBC thankfully did the math for us, and at $20 a pop, that means around 15,000 caps have been sold.
We've got to say, food companies have been bringing the heat lately, when it comes to promotional apparel. Last week, Hidden Valley unveiled its holiday merchandise collection, and before that, we had Taco Bell and KFC making waves. But we have to give credit where credit is due, and this Thanksgiving apparel from Stove Top is a true marvel. Kraft's stuffing brand rolled out its Thanksgiving Dinner Pants, and we are not worthy.
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".
