The eclipse craze is in full swing and no sector of our lives has gone untouched, including our beauty routines. We recently learned, courtesy of astrologers, that the celestial event will compel us to whack off our hair and that we should expect major career successes all around (sweet!). We have also learned, according to an article in Wired, that witnessing the event may literally make you cry. Deep stuff.
When Rachel Lamel came on board to launch denim brand 3x1 in 2011, she had already made her mark in the jeans world with J Brand and Rag & Bone. (Remember the colored denim craze? You can thank her for your lavender, cobalt, and cherry-red pairs—she helped catapult the trend at Rag & Bone.) And she had also long been an aficionado, collecting jeans since she was a pre-teen, which helps explain why she now owns somewhere between 500 to 600 pairs.
Something very odd was going on. Women in Saudi Arabia were getting the kinds of dark spots on their cheeks that are normally caused by the sun — only that should have been impossible. “They were wearing niqabs, which are traditional Muslim face coverings, so their skin was hardly ever exposed,” says Zoe Diana Draelos, a consulting professor of dermatology at Duke University, who researches hyperpigmentation .
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".
