We really must say, when we started to write this post about inappropriate Christmas sweaters, it was set to be a unisex tome about completely tasteless, but funny, ugly Christmas sweater options. As we’ve discovered, apparently there is some inequality between the sexes when it comes to these cult classics. As it turns out, women’s ugly Christmas sweaters were mostly cutesy ugly.
The season of Advent isn’t very far off, and for many, it’s a lovely time to reflect on the true meaning of the Christmas holiday. Advent really offers a chance to slow down, and appreciate some special moments with family and friends. It also gives you the chance to reflect on all of your own blessings in life. Perhaps you only had advent calendars as a kid. Or maybe you get your own children a new one each year.
Finding some new and different Halloween costumes for girls might initially seem like a challenge. But thanks to the overwhelming number of female pop culture icons, from super heroes and villains, to Pokemon characters, and the never ending stream of Disney darlings (like Moana or the Descendants 2 girls, Uma and Mal) you won’t have any issues finding something fun for your girl to wear this year. You can find great costumes in every budget category, too.
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".
