PHOTOS: Glossier Babes on Queen West & Our Convo with CEO Emily Weiss Posted on September 19, 2017 Earlier this month, Glossier, the beauty and skincare company launched by Emily Weiss of Into The Gloss, took over a vacant shop on Queen Street West to host a seven-day pop-up. For every day that week, lines formed between Dovercourt and Ossington with stylish babes waiting to step into the pink box full of the latest Glossier offerings.
Violeta Ayala grew up in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where coca powder dusts the streets and the cocaine industry is part of everyday life. One of Violeta’s earliest memories is of going to the market with her grandmother and watching cocaine being sold by the pound. The business of drugs was ever-present in her childhood, as was the war on drugs.
As someone who has struggled with alcoholism, I found the opening scenes of Mary Goes Round to be powerfully triggering. The bruises, the late-night licentious behaviour with strangers, the inability to open a front door at 3AM: watching Mary ruin yet another night was like watching my younger self unravel at Sweaty Betty’s on Ossington.
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".
