The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival — more commonly known as the Yulin Dog Meat Festival — occurs this week in Yulin, China. On this day, people gather together to eat dog meat and, while less publicized, cat meat. If you’ve only just started hearing about this event, it’s understandable: It’s only been around for seven years. Dog and cat meat consumption is legal in China. (It’s also technically legal in the United States, though less common.
I was obsessed with music in high school. Music was my world: Wearing my headphones in my bedroom or on the bus, listening to women like Courtney Love, Shirley Manson, Fiona Apple, and Björk, I felt protected and understood. Their songs captured my feelings of not quite fitting in. But really, it was more than the music—it was their looks. The way they chose to present themselves.
As a part of our very special, Volume II: Music Issue , we talked to singer-songwriter and unapologetic vagina enthusiast, Tove Lo, about what her vagina tattoo means to her and why more woman should be proud of their lady parts. “Excuse me, what’s that symbol on your jacket?”“Oh, come on, my wife’s right here.”“Well, she has one, so hopefully she’s not offended.”My whole crew (of two girls and eight dudes) and I walked away smiling, with my vagina logo on the backs of our tour jackets.
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".
