When talking about self-perception, beauty standards, objectification, and how we relate to the rest of the world, 2007 was a pivotal moment that changed the lives of women, epically. Just months apart we were introduced to the iPhone and watched the series premiere of Keeping up With the Kardashians. At the time, these two events were certainly noteworthy. Ten years later, we can look back and see how, together, they have drastically altered our sense of self—probably for the worse.
When I was originally presented with the idea of slathering honey all over my face, I was skeptical to say the least. I have large pores, naturally sebaceous skin, and have been acne-prone since puberty. The idea that goopy, globby honey could do anything other than clog said pores and wreak havoc on my face was hard to compute. But I kept on seeing it everywhere. Countless women have extolled the rêve de miel lip balm with honey from French mainstay Nuxe.
In early October, New York magazine published a list it called “The 100 Best Screenwriters of All Time.” The inventory was compiled not by fans but by screenwriters themselves. As to be expected, men make up the majority. On that, New York offered a true, if regretful, statement: “Hollywood’s traditional exclusion of women and people of color makes it extraordinarily difficult to truly qualify the best in the craft.”Within the top ten, however, one woman can be found: Nora Ephron, listed at No. 9.
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".
