Question time: where do you think emojis come from? Who comes up with new ones, where and why? You have no idea, do you? You stick smiley faces all over your emails and think no more about it. So did Jennifer 8 Lee — she added the 8 to distinguish herself from all the other Jennifer Lees in America — until fate intervened, in the form of dumplings, and turned her into an emoji activist.
Christian Louboutin doesn’t just have an office in Paris, he has a street. Half the buildings on the Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau belong to him and half the shoes walking up it bear his trademark red sole. But if you were expecting his HQ to be as soigné as his shoes, you’d be in for a shock: it’s a warren of a place centred on a meeting room furnished with a vast 1970s striped sofa and a glass-topped coffee table with a reclining panda for a base.
Feminine, simple, and colorful is how Hilary Rose Elrod describes her Southern style. The Georgia-born University of Texas at Austin grad has been blogging from Austin since 2015, and she's as comfortable in a dress as she is in jeans. Her mom inspires her outfit choices, and her grandmother's jewels are her favorite accessories. When she's not sharing style tips on her blog (By, Hilary Rose) or looks on Instagram (@byhilaryrose), she loves playing with her pup Patsy, named after Patsy Cline.
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".
