These gutsy reporters—decked out in I-mean-business trench coats—reveal what its like working in the era of fake newsNow, more than ever, being a journalist is a tough gig. Besides jousting to break ultra-clickable stories, today’s media pros face a steady readership decline, a growing distrust of the press and the advent of the F-word—fake news. Still, the most intrepid journalists see opportunity in the current climate.
How to wear the bra top (even if you don't want to show any skin)Looong gone are the days where showing your bra was considered tacky—instead, they’re now the centrepieces of our summertime outfits. Designers put bra tops of all forms out on the runway, from sheer and lacy to fierce leather and even plaid. The season’s staple works no matter your style (even if you prefer a more covered-up look—see the over-the-blouse iteration worn at Prada).
“We were dancing and vibing out and noticed that we both had the same look with our freckles and overalls"While attending an event in Kensington Market just five months ago, recent high school grads Kiah Francis, 17, and Daenah Campbell, 18, had a friends-at-first-sight moment. “We were dancing and vibing out and noticed that we both had the same look with our freckles and overalls,” says Kiah. The pair ended up heading to the same after-party and stayed up until 6 a.m. together.
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".
