For her new series, Badass Women of Washington, CNN’s Dana Bash profiles women who make a splash on the nightly news (Senator Dianne Feinstein), who hold up institutions behind the scenes (West Point grad, Desert Storm veteran, and three-star general Nadja West), and a whole host of others. “There’s so many ways to define badass,” she told Glamour. “You kinda know it when you see it. All of these women broke barriers, in their careers and in their personal lives.
The fill-in-the-blank story goes on from there, explaining that Lynne’s mother once held a vague job in a big office and that she told Lisa yesterday that she’s going back to work. “The morning was terrible,” it continues, especially since Lisa’s inept father can’t properly prepare breakfast for his school-age child and forces her to clear up the dishes.
The top of my 3-month-oldâ€™s head smells soft and airy, like a breezy day thatâ€™s wafting powder my way and picking up the earthy scent of a French forest on the way. Iâ€™ve given a lot of thought to the matter because I spend about two-thirds of my day with that bald little melon within a foot of my nose. Although my unbiased opinion is that mine smells best, all babies inherently smell delightful.
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".
