Ever wish you could become your co-worker for a day? Actually walk in their shoes? Especially if their shoes are nice? Chanel, to be exact? The Freaky Friday -type switch happened here at the Vogue offices. Vogue Assistant Editor Lilah Ramzi and Vogue.com Senior Fashion Writer Liana Satenstein wore each other's clothing for a day as well as to the company's annual holiday party. Now, this isn’t a simple change, either. Both have very distinctive styles drawn from two entirely different eras.
It’s Christmas , and you’re in the mood to watch something festive. Netflix’s best is lacking in holiday spirit, so a classic it is! But before you press play on It’s a Wonderful Life , consider the alternatives: You’re likely well-versed in Frank Capra’s simultaneously macabre and feel-good wintertime flick, and Hollywood’s golden age oeuvre is filled with Christmastime tales for kids from 1 to 92. Why not try something a little different?
The art of gift-giving is twofold: it takes thoughtful gift-picking and careful wrapping. Despite the fact the latter usually ends up a crumpled jumble on the floor, we still make the effort. There's something romantic about the ephemerality of an exquisitely wrapped present. You enjoy it, much like you do an a bouquet of freshly clipped roses, knowing it will end up in the rubbish. But of course with a neatly-packaged present, you're left with the gift itself!
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".
