Matt Damon spoke to ABC News recently, about the “watershed” moment that’s happening now, with men finally having to face some repercussions for acting like vile, lecherous monsters. It was a ground-breaking interview, because we really need more male voices on this topic. I mean, it’s been a full two months since the Weinstein allegations surfaced, emboldening women who’ve in some cases been suffering abuse and harassment for decades to come forward and name their harassers. Aren’t we done yet?
It has become a normal daily routine for most Americans to wake up, take a deep breath, and dare to peek at what disastrous early morning tweet our president came up with. And just when you think it can’t get any worse — it does. Yesterday, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called for Trump’s resignation, in light of the many allegations of sexual assault he has against him. She also called for a congressional investigation. “President Trump should resign,” she tweeted.
Do you have any idea how many women dread doctor appointments, simply because they know they will need to step on a scale? Scale dread is real. So is the dread that a doctor will shame you for your weight. The very last place a woman should be worried about being ‘shamed’ for anything is her doctor’s office. Doctors are meant to heal us. Provide health care. Provide medical advice. Not suggest cosmetic laser fat removal surgery.
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".
