Over the past few days, boys and men have been going viral, championed for their choices to stand up to sexist rules of dress—especially when it’s hot outside. Women, however, have been fighting societal standards of what is deemed appropriate to wear since the beginning of time—and then shamed for whatever decisions they make or even the natural shape of their bodies.
Ireland is getting its first openly gay, as well as its youngest, prime minister. On Friday, 38-year-old Minister of Social Protection Leo Varadkar beat out opponent Simon Coveney with 60 percent of the electoral college votes to be the leader of the ruling Fine Gael party. The outgoing Taoiseach, or prime minister, Enda Kenny, stepped down in May. Varadkar will be confirmed on June 13.
On Wednesday Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed the Grieving Families Act, making Florida the first state to issue birth certificates for miscarried fetuses. Under the law, which will go into effect July 1, if a parent requests a birth certificate for a miscarriage, nurses and midwives are required to file a registration of “nonviable birth” with the state or the local government within 30 days. Only women who’ve miscarried between nine and 20 weeks of pregnancy can request the certificate, however.
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".
