It seems fashion is still grappling with the concept of cultural appropriation. Last week, Canadian luxury fashion brand Ports 1961 unveiled their men’s spring 2018 collection in Milan. Among the sleek and graphic separates were two sweaters that have sparked an outcry from journalists and social media users alike. Specifically, they bore the slogans “Every Color Matters” and “Only Love Matters.”Reaction to the sweaters and their manipulation of the Black Lives Matter message was swift and severe.
Life is stressful. And many would argue it’s never quite as stressful as when you’re planning a wedding or getting ready for a new baby. That’s why couples are making a concerted effort to plan a getaway around these events that allows for total relaxation and a break from the prep work.
Rebecca Burger, a French lifestyle blogger, died on June 18 when a whipped cream canister she was using exploded and a part struck her in the chest triggering a heart attack. News of her death was posted by her family to her Instagram page. Although the post doesn’t mention the brand of the canister, the Associated Press reports that it was an Ard’time product that was recalled in France in 2013 due to previous reports of explosions causing injuries.
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".
