Depending on who you ask, crystals are either tools to help unlock your great, untapped power or they’re just rocks. Spencer Pratt will likely tell you the former, skeptics the latter. But no matter what your initial impressions of the stones may be, we can all agree they’re pretty interesting and at the very least, simply pretty. Before last week, my experience with crystals began and ended with a small variety pack of stones I acquired when I was 10.
For many brides, their wedding day stands to be one of the best day of their lives. So, it’s only natural that they want to look and feel their best. And that goes beyond a gorgeous dress. From perfect hair and makeup to toned arms and a glowy spray tan, these ladies work hard and spend a lot to stun on their special day. Starting with a calculated and ongoing workout regime, some people spend upwards of $2000 for sound nutrition advice and a great trainer to look their best in photos.
The NBA Finals enters Game 5 tonight with the Golden State Warriors leading the 7-game series 3-1 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. And, even though the Cavs narrowly avoided a Warriors sweep, the pressure's on to keep winning. It's hard to imagine being bored by such competitive play, but even the crème of the crop, like Lebron James and Kevin Durant, can’t keep everyone entertained forever–and that includes celebrities. VIDEO: Sorry Boys!
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".
