As 2017 (thankfully) nears an end, the year’s awards shows are also beginning to wind down. Last night’s American Music Awards, one of the last major ceremonies we’ll be seeing before 2018, proved that the year is going out with a bang, as it featured one of the best dressed red carpets we’ve seen all year. (Rihanna’s iconic Commes Des Garcons moment at the Met Gala was, of course, one of—if not the—best looks of the year, but that’s a different story.)
The holiday season is just around the corner. Whether you normally head home to family for the holidays (making this, for some, maybe the most dreaded time of year) or spend the holidays with friends, you might find that you have the urge to simply get away from everything and everyone. It’s been a long year, am I right? If that’s the case, given that you have time off and vacation savings set aside, now might be the time to consider a wellness retreat, the latest in buzzy wellness trends.
We’ve long admired indie accessories brands Building Block and FAUX/Real for their masterful use of geometry and minimal embellishments in their handbags and jewelry, respectively. Today, the two united to bring us the holiday collaboration of the season—one that’s a far cry from what “holiday” normally entails.
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".
