Mandy Moore knows a thing or two about making quality family time a priority. On her hit NBC show This Is Us she is the matriarch of the Pearson clan, but in real life her holiday plans involve her friends as much as they do family.
Angelenos love a good fitness craze, and the latest weight-loss treatment is claiming to help people lose inches by just putting on a puffy suit and kicking back. The Ballancer Pro is an inflating compression garment, both a jacket and pants worn separately, made out of parachute-like material containing 24 overlapping air chambers that apply fluent compression strokes to targeted areas for 30 to 40 minutes. I tried it and this is what happened.
Blame the glam slam that is now the Emmys on January Jones, who wore white Atelier Versace in 2009. "Mad Men had such a fashion impact, and designers in Europe were watching the show," says L.A.'s Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Museum spokesman Nick Verreos. Before that Versace (and a couple of Chanel couture stunners worn by Sarah Jessica Parker for Sex & the City), stars were freer to express wackier takes on fashion.
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".
