As everyone knows, things can get confusing when you’re piled in a huge orgy with various other members of your species. So scientists think male frogs change colors mid-sex-spree — from greenish-brown to vibrant yellow — to help their frog-bros focus on the ladies. Going yellow is their way of saying, “Hey, dude-frog, I’m a dude-frog, too, so don’t waste your time on me,” according to researchers from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and Macquarie University.
Chef Missy Robbins stunned New York’s culinary world in 2013 when she stepped down from her role as executive chef at acclaimed Italian restaurants A Voce Madison and A Voce Columbus. Behind the scenes, though, Robbins’ career was causing her health to suffer — an experience the Brooklyn resident chronicles in her new memoir-cookbook, “Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner . . . Life!” (Rizzoli, out now).
You know you’ve got your finger on the pulse of the fitness world when Madonna comes to you for the latest moves. “She always calls me for advice,” says Carlos Leon, the actor and trainer who dated Madge in the mid-’90s and fathered their now-20-year-old daughter, Lourdes. He says he still considers the singer one of his best friends and sends her customized workout videos she can use while traveling abroad. “She’s always asking, ‘What’s cutting edge?
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".
