It’s safe to say that 2017 was an eye-opening time, particularly when it came to sexual harassment in Hollywood and in workplaces seemingly everywhere. And from the ashes of all the horrific stories we’ve heard from women over the last few months, a beast rises, ready to take on the system. Women in the industry, actresses and directors, writers and producers, agents and executives, have united for an initiative called Time’s Up.
The in-laws are packing their suitcases, your sister is stuffing leftover turkey into Tupperware, and the kids are busy playing with their brand new toys. What all of them fail to realize is that you are the one stuck dealing with the big post-holiday mess. Shocker. Trimming the tree? Amazing. Untrimming the tree? Here’s a hint: It rhymes with witty. And don’t even get us started on the exercise in patience that is corralling half-used rolls of wrapping paper.
What can we say – Lupita absolutely sparkles at the LA premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The emerald green, the ruches of the fabric, the glimmer – it all adds up to something out of this world. Style WinnerAt the London premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Gwendoline should have been a sure-fire hit. The gauzy fabric is normally enchanting, but this outfit is a little on the sheer side, and lacks shape. Style LoserAt the GQ holiday party in LA, Gal is channelling her inner Santa.
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".
