As the weather continues to drop, it's the perfect time of year to wind down, wrap yourself in a wool blanket, and curl up with a good book. And in case you're looking for a new page turner, might we suggest leaning into Merriam-Webster's official 2017 Word of the Year with some stellar feminist reading?
Healthy and effective nutrition plans are a lot like jeans—it can be hard to find the right fit, but once you do, it’s hard not to happily shake what your mama gave ya. That's why, year after year, Weight Watchers is easily one of the most popular diets out there. (Hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it... and Oprah approves!) The current Weight Watchers points system, called SmartPoints, assigns users a daily points target based on their current weight and goals.
Jaguar is pulling out all the stops to promote its first new sports car since 1974, and that includes releasing a 13-minute ad/short film starring Homeland's Damian Lewis. Lewis, who told the Hollywood Reporter that the Ridley Scott produced gig "fell into [his] lap," was excited to play what he saw as a quirky British character, especially considering that "There's not a lot of comedy in Homeland."
I also hope that every abuser, whether they have been named or not, whether the abuse was ruthlessly and systematically executed or carried out with shrug at a frat party after plying victims with just enough alcohol to render them incapable of saying no, is fucking TERRIFIED
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".
