To-do lists are great when you want to stay on top of your goals, but terrible when they get so long that one look sends you into an anguished, hopeless spiral. Here’s the thing, though: If you’re really trying to get things done, you just can’t freak out. Take it from Billie Jean King—tennis legend, social activist, all-around rad human—whose highly publicized match against Bobby Riggs in 1973 inspired the new film Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell.
Emma Stone did some hardcore training (think: deadlifts) to prepareÂ for La La Land, so she’s no stranger to a gym. But to play the tennis trailblazer Billie Jean King, the Oscar winnerÂ had to put evenÂ more muscle onto herÂ lithe frame. “I had never played an athlete before and I had never been athletic before,” Stone said on Sunday at a press conference for Battle of the Sexes. TheÂ new movie depicts the real-life tennis showdownÂ between King and Bobby Riggs in 1973.
Jeffree Star has four Pomeranians named Diva, Diamond, Daddy, and Delicious. One dog is a handful. Four is chaos. While he was getting his makeup done for this photo shoot in May, Star gave his publicist some advice: "Unless you have a Nathan, don't get a dog." That's Nathan Schwandt, 24, Star's live-in boyfriend, who was a pet-shop employee in Michigan when he slid into Star's Instagram DMs in 2015.
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".
