It has been 21 years since the Spice Girls reinvigorated mainstream feminism. Girl Power - an iconic slogan preached by the girl band that brought the women’s movement, which was seemingly dead in the early 90s, back to life. And more than two decades later, girl band Little Mix are keeping their legacy well and truly alive. Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have received a lot of negative publicity recently for their so-called raunchy outfits.
Geordie comedian Chris Ramsey might have been on the stage, but it was an audience member who had the packed-out Nottingham Playhouse crowd in stitches. Scottish Angus, who was sitting in the back row, proudly told the tale of how his five-year-old son sleep-walked into his room and observed him while he was having some private time - his wife was away - watching adult movies.
A mum discovered her baby girl dead in her pram after her taking her for a walk in the park. Shannon Tideswell, 20, made the most of the hottest day of the year so far by taking eight-month-old Maisie-Leigh Lamb out for a stroll. But their pleasant day out turned to horror when Shannon noticed the infant's lips had turned blue and she wasn't breathing. Maisie-Leigh was rushed to hospital in Nottingham but could not be saved.
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".
