“So is butt stuff a thing we’re all doing now?” my friend Maya Gchatted me one afternoon. She’d reunited with an ex after several years and was surprised to find his predilections had changed. Hers hadn’t. “It just reminds me of when I was little and would eat too much spicy food, and my mom would have to put Vaseline on my dumb little kid butt. You can touch my butt, but not the hole.”“Butt stuff is such a thing,” I replied. “Not anal sex necessarily. Just anal messing around.
Distorted, mixed-up, and outright false memories can happen to anyone of any age. As our frontal lobes age, however, these types of confused and muddled memories become more likely to happen. Our frontal lobes help us to pay attention, store and retrieve information, and organize our memories. Older frontal lobes don’t work quite as well as they did when they were younger, requiring us to put in more effort to pay attention, learn new information, and recall information or events.
Beasts of the Southern Wild’s 9-year-old star Quvenzhané Wallis faces a formidable challenge on Sunday. The youngest-ever nominee for the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, the puppy purse enthusiast needs not only to maintain composure, but to look appropriate in a black-tie environment while she does it. Wallis recently fretted, “fashion is my kryptonite,” and worried about tripping on a gown. So what should a 9-year-old wear on the Oscars red carpet?
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".
