Sure, you can write lengthy features and click-bait blurbs at the drop of a hat, but a book?! As intimidating as it seems, it is possible — just ask Hannah Orenstein, dating editor at Elite Daily. When she was a junior at NYU, Hannah interned at ELLE, where she met resident advice columnist E. Jean Carroll. After spending some time with Hannah, E. Jean offered her a position at Tawkify, a dating service she co-founded in 2012.
Weirdness level: 1/10 Sure, you’ve heard of pasta and mayonnaise, but slathering your favorite bagel spread on a steamy plate of penne sounds, well, gross. But trust us, it’s good. Cream cheese will create a creamy, Alfredo-like sauce when warm and, after a couple hours in the fridge, it’ll mimic macaroni salad. Another pasta partner? Cottage cheese! Cheaper than ricotta, it’s indistinguishable in a lasagna.
Like most people, I break out when I’m stressed, PMS-ing, or too tired to wash my face after a night out. It’s something I’ve experienced since puberty, which is about as long as I’ve been in search of an effective solution. Everything I’ve ever tried to hide or tame my pimples has fallen short of my expectations. Concealer made my pimples more noticeable, and acne-fighting serums would dehydrate my skin, kicking my body’s sebum production into overdrive and giving me more pimples.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
