Let’s be real: We’re not ones to follow pesky fashion rules. We’re all for mixing black and navy; we think red and pink deserve a rightful spot on the list of life’s essential pairings; and clashing prints thrill us to no end. Another sartorial statute we can’t get behind? The one that decrees thou shalt never wear white after Labor Day—which seems to have snuck up on us quicker than usual this year.
The downloadable PDF includes recipes for everything from chana masala to cauliflower tacos and a savory summer cobbler, and is a great resource for those who are strapped for cash and don't want to rely on prepackaged meals. Most of the recipes can be prepared in just minutes using pantry staples like canned vegetables, long-grain rice, and chickpeas.
Great news for women everywhere: If you opt out of wearing makeup to work, you're probably getting paid less. Sure, we already knew attractive people were more likely to earn a higher salary, but a study by sociologists Jaclyn S. Wong and Andrew M. Penner found that this relationship was reduced when they controlled for grooming. "We find that attractive individuals earn roughly 20 percent more than people of average attractiveness," the study found, confirming conventional wisdom.
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".
