I had a harsh, subconscious realisation this Christmas. Some time subsequent to the ‘throwing five-inch heels at Jon’s head’ incident, but before a week spent wearing reindeer antlers in the sweet shop, reality came and hit me, loudly reminding me my days in limbo must end. In this moment of cruel clarity I hit the wall of recognition – my student card expired seven months ago yet I was still sat at the graduate crossroads, my plans to ‘find myself’ no longer acceptable.
I don’t whether it was watching Emma Watson’s UN speech or interviewing Linda Papadopoulos, but recently I’ve found myself mulling over the issues of gender inequality and female education. Gone are the days when females were excluded from secondary school and university places; in fact, according to UCAS almost 58% of students applying for places at British institutions this year were female.
By order of the Peaky Blinders, your baby should be seen in nothing less than a tweed three-piece suit and flat cap. But if you thought it might be tricky to kit your newborn out in Victorian era gear, think again, as Mamas and Papas have brought out a range which looks like it’s come straight from 1919 Birmingham. We’ve handpicked our favourite pieces here:
Be right back, we’re just ordering the entire range!
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".
