Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continued their royal handshake tour with a recent stop at Cardiff Castle in Wales. The purpose of the visit was to experience authentic Welsh culture, which, in this instance, included cultural performances and samples of regional cuisine. They were also presented with a five-tier ~cheese~ wedding cake by the Snowdonia Cheese Company, and now we’ve decided that regular cake is lame and we only want to see cheese cakes at all weddings always.
During a January 8th edition of the podcast This Won’t Hurt a Bit, Dr. Kenny Banh told the story of a Fresno man he recently treated who came to the emergency room with a five-and-a-half-foot tapeworm wrapped around a roll of toilet paper. The man came to the ER complaining of bloody diarrhea and then held out a brown paper bag to Dr. Banh. “I take out a toilet paper roll…and wrapped around it of course is what looks like this giant, long tapeworm,” Bahn revealed on the podcast.
Kim Kardashian has announced the name of her and Kanye West’s newborn daughter, and *drum roll please*, it’s Chicago. While we love the name, “Chicago” actually goes against Kim’s baby name philosophy, and there’s a very simple reason why. Kardashian revealed during a November 15th, 2017 appearance on The Ellen Show that she and West were having a hard time coming up with a name.
Can you even imagine turning to your significant other and being like “do you know what we should do? We should just have ONE Facebook account that we both share, like a joint account.” Like, can you even imagine saying those words?
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".
