I always wanted a boy. From the moment my husband and I saw that tiny cluster of cells on the sonogram screen, I knew I was staring at my son. His tiny heart pounded like a tribal drum mixed with the sound of waves. My son was born a sensitive soul. Part of me hates that his feelings are hurt so easily, and when he cries I have to remember to be patient, even though it’s in my nature to tell him, “Toughen up!” In some ways, he’s not the boy I imagined.
I love flipping through catalogues and glossy gift guides during the holidays. I’ll dog-ear pages containing all the best things to buy this season. Gifts for mom. Something for my husband. And, now, the ever-growing list for the kids. But then that stack of beautiful intentions often ends up in a cabinet near my bed. I know this sounds terribly lazy but, I just don’t have time to shop for all the stuff that I’ve discovered in those pages. Then I stumbled on goop GIFT.
These gifts will make her feel glamorous. Luxurious velvet is everywhere this winter. From thigh-high boots to floor-length gowns, plush velvet reigns in a variety of rich colors melded with ornate hardware embellishments. Prada’s velvet cross-body shoulder bag embodies this look with a detachable metal chain shoulder strap and pewter finishes. Embrace three fall trends with one look. The towering silhouette created by this faux suede boot gives the wearer a lift.
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".
