Brace yourselves, parents. It turns out that the hottest toy of summer 2017, the fidget spinner, tops the list of most dangerous. According to World Against Toys Causing Harming (W.A.T.C.H. ), a group that advocates for children’s safety, that triangular-shaped piece of plastic that keeps your tot’s hands busy is actually pretty harmful. “Do not be lulled into a false sense of security that a toy is safe simply because it is popular,” warns Joan E. Siff, President of W.A.T.C.H.
If you thought the helix tattoo — the delicate, little bit of body art that runs up and down the side of the ear — seemed like it was in a spot much too sensitive to get inked, wait until you hear about the latest trend: armpit tattoos. Yup, people are raising their hands high and inviting tattoo artists to get all up in their pits. But the pain that comes along with inking this usually-left-untouched area ranks real high.
Pop star Lorde compared her friend Taylor Swift‘s fame to an autoimmune disease in an interview with The Guardian over the weekend, and in doing so, ended up potentially offending another one of her friends, Selena Gomez, as well as plenty of others who suffer from illnesses such as lupus, type 1 diabetes, IBM, psoriasis and more. “It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies,” she said in the interview. “There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do.
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".
