One of New York’s most recent celebrity imports, Taylor Swift, has dedicated a whole song to her new home on her upcoming album 1989. Gawrsh, little old us? A song? You shouldn’t have. Below is the thirty-second clip, which is as good as we’re getting until the album drops later this month. It’s very pop-y and enthusiastic and optimistic about the delights of New York, because Swift has yet to be crushed by the ongoing garbage compactor-like vise that is the city.
Sexual assault on the subway is a scary, unpleasant specter always looming over the business of commuting in New York City, whether it’s groping or flashing or something even more intrusive. An analysis from the Daily News found over 3,000 reports of sexual assault on the subway from 2008 to 2013, mostly during rush hour, where, presumably, the crush of bodies provides cover for the creepsters. But those are just the incidents that people took the time to report.
Of all the fictions touted in traditional glossy women’s magazines, my favorite has always been the “Day-to-Night” column. You know, the one where your flawless professional work outfit transforms, thanks to application of a darker lipstick and larger earrings, into a dazzling cocktail or first-date look. Has that ever actually happened? Are some human people actually able to go from gym to work to cocktails and have their hair and makeup and overall garment situation not even a little rumpled?
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".
