There was granny hair. There was granny attitude (see: staying in on a Friday). Now, it's all about the granny panties. The NYTimes recently found that in the past year, sales of briefs, boy shorts and high-waisted underwear have grown 17 percent, while thong sales have decreased 7 percent. (Yup, they're onto us again.) Besides the fact that full-coverage underwear feels like a safety net for your ass, it also is an extremely flattering cut, regardless of size.
There are some days you just don't want to talk — when you feel (for lack of a better word) like sh*t, and all you want is to close the door, shut off your brain and not think for a while. “But what will help me relax like that?” you might ask. If meditation isn't your thing and good therapy is too expensive, look no further than the bottle from last New Year's sitting on your counter. Sometimes, you don't need to vent, you just need to (mildly) blot out. Enter: wine.
Okay, we’re officially doubled over in cuteness-pain, the latest a result of a New Jersey yoga instructor, Laura Kasperzak, and her two preschool children, who totally love being in front of the cameras. The yoga mom of two’s stunning depictions of flexibility and strength have garnered her more than 700,000 Instagram followers. The best shots, however, are those of her and her little ones stretching and spending quality time on the yoga mats.
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".
