I’m invisible to the leprechauns. Are you wearing green today? If you’re not, watch out. Have you ever wondered what it meant to wear green on this day, St. Patrick’s Day? St. Patrick’s revelers thought wearing green made them invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching other people who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.
Don’t tell me I’m not beautiful. For years you’ve heard of celebrities talk about if they wanted to continue in films, or music, they had to be a certain size. In recent years, celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Bridget Malcolm, and Meghan Trainor have said they like to eat and don’t listen to people telling them to lose weight. Jennifer Lawrence opened up about the “humiliating” and “degrading” experience she had in the early days of her career.
When it’s women versus men, who smiles bigger? According to researchers at the University of Bradford, men and women smile considerably different. The researchers used 49 landmarks of the face, mainly around the eyes, mouth, and down the nose, to assess how the face changes as we smile caused by underlying muscle movements.Â They then tested whether there were noticeable differences between men and women, and found that there were: women have more expansive smiles.
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".
