Liz Lemon may not be a fashion icon, but she certainly got one thing right: Whatever you're doing, whatever you're wearing, if it's not compatible with cheese consumption, it isn't worth it. So when we saw this exhibit put on by the French Cheese Board (a studio devoted to all things French cheese—no, you can't move in there, sorry) we had to share. "Is it possible to love cheese yet remain thin and sexy?" asked photographer Thomas Laisné.
When the Stonewall Inn uprising electrified the gay rights movement in America, Edith Windsor had already been engaged to her partner, Thea Spyer, for two years. More than 40 years later, the spry and elegant former computer programmer became one of the most memorable faces of that movement, as she battled through the court system for the right to marry her longtime love in the city she’d called home since the 1950s. Windsor, who died today at the age of 88, never got that chance.
Any digital native will tell you that reports of the death of reading are greatly exaggerated. As much as we guiltily stare into our phones for hours on end, we also collectively devour thousands of pages of fantasy, YA, fiction (can YOU put down The Goldfinch?) and facts year after year. Hell, the best-selling book in America right now is a 700-page opus on income inequality by a French economist. But what about the next generation? "Think of the children!
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".
