Open up your Amazon app on your phone, sign into your Prime account, and you can now explore what's available to buy on Amazon Spark, a new feed of images with scattered dots that you can click on and hopefully buy the item you see in the photo. We decided to give it a quick test run to find out if it's worth the time, how accurate it is, and to see what we could buy. The first thing that happens: a prompt to pick our interests.
Damn, the future on the West Coast looks really, really freaking cool. And that’s all because of Ryan Gosling's coat. In the new trailer for Blade Runner 2049, we see the Oscar-nominated actor in a long shearling-lined jacket—a ton—that deserves its own award. For two-and-a-half minutes, he punches people while wearing it. He shoots. He hangs out with Harrison Ford. He does it all.
Whether you're lathering up your face, head, or chest, a smooth shave requires patience, practice, technique, and the right tools. But drugstore aisles are filled with dozens of options—disposable, refillable, electric—and a growing number of mail-order subscription razor services are disrupting the shaving industry. That’s why we reached out to Paul Langevin, senior barber at Blind Barber, a high-end barbershop and lounge in Brooklyn, New York, for advice on how to buy the best razor.
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".
