I'm standing in line to pay for my manicure and pedicure at Haven Spa , the only salon I've stayed loyal to in my decade-long romp in New York City, when the woman behind the counter asks, "Do you want to try our Bitch Massage?" There was a time in my life when I would have taken that phrase as more of a statement than a question, but it's 2016 now, a time when divas are hustlers and a bitch is a boss. Plus, I just hosted my fiancé's family for the holidays.
Four years ago, the world was introduced to the wide-eyed Mia Goth, the U.K.-bred, half-Brazilian, half-Canadian actress whose debut performance as an insufferably complicated and long-limbed schoolgirl with a big appetite for sex in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac landed her a Miu Miu campaign. To this day, Goth, who is currently a face of Prada’s gender-fluid fragrances La Femme Prada Intense and L’Homme Prada Intense , remains a bit of a question mark.
Alexa Chung is known as fashion’s cool Brit, so when I heard the news that she was starting her own clothing line, I immediately thought two things: One, how does she not have her own collection already? After all, at just 33 years old, the former model has interviewed countless major designers as a TV host and created splashy, sold-out collabs with brands like Madewell and AG Jeans. My second thought: I’m so down with that! Which is unusual for me.
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".
