“Played it so nonchalant/ It’s time we danced with the truth.”Upon the release of her first single, the inimitable and deliciously inescapable “Royals”, New Zealand pop sensation Lorde was heralded for being timeless. The words “old soul” may as well have been rubber-stamped onto her passport, “quirky” branded on the back of her hand.
“I’m so sick and tired of getting pigeonholed as the prince of darkness,” Hans Zimmer exhales with exaggerated bombast, pausing for the briefest moment before letting out a chuckle. For a man who rose to fame in the last decade on the back of charred experimentation and eerie dissonance, the German-born composer is quick with a gregarious laugh.
Tami Erwin gets things done. She knows that each challenge requires its own appropriate tool. She knows that each person needs to be led in their own way. Sometimes you need a screwdriver, and sometimes you need a saw. Some people like to be publicly recognized for their work. Others might require compassion and quiet praise. Throughout her career at Verizon Wireless, Erwin has grown her leadership skill set to find the right solution for any situation.
@roberthamwriter@davidegreenwald Having a partner who has a full time job helps, absolutely it goddamn does! Even just how the anxiety isn’t multiplied when its felt by one person. My husband works full time and we’ve certainly spoken about what will happen in the future - to swap/not.
@davidegreenwald noooope. That tendency of mind/view that’s so hard-wired into the collective psyche that it exists above and beyond logic/fairness. Anything becoming a “norm” is frightening and unfortunately it is, the norm to be overlooked/underpaid.
@roberthamwriter@davidegreenwald That’s interesting! Allowing you to really be creative and not feel the weight of it all if you were relying on yourself. I hear ya. I can imagine you’d be prepared to do the same for her one day too!
@davidegreenwald haahaa. i mean in the ideal world freelance should work like that, design/photography/ production work does, whyyy journalism is held at a different standard is why it’s disheartening. It’s a broken faucet? Blocked sink? tryna be on theme here.
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".
