Theresa May has turned her shoes from a symbol of subservience into one of power as Margaret Thatcher did with her handbag, according to Mary Beard. Beard’s most recent book, Women and Power: A Manifesto, explores how power has been removed from women’s hands throughout time and what women can do to reclaim it. Speaking at the Bazaar At Work summit, hosted by Harper’s Bazaar, the classicist said the mental image people have of those in powerful positions are rarely of women.
When two artists were breaking up, they wanted to create a vault to stash painful memories of a past love. This vault became the Museum of Broken Relationships. Strangers from across the world now send in the momentoes that tell the stories of their own break-ups. It might be a stub from a cinema ticket; a shell collected from the beach you once strolled together; a Polaroid stuck on your fridge. The keepsakes we treasure during relationships can be hard to part ways with once it’s all over.
Self-employed mothers are today launching a campaign to address the inequality in maternity pay they say is forcing many to return to work immediately after giving birth. Employed mothers receive 90 per cent of their salary as statutory maternity pay for the first six weeks of their maternity leave from the Government. Anything after the first six weeks is then paid at the employer’s discretion. Self-employed women do not get statutory maternity pay during the first six weeks.
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".
