Instagram fitness queen Kayla Itsines has never eaten at McDonaldâ€™s, but she insists she has had a cheeseburger. For anyone who has followed Itsinesâ€™ journey to becoming an international phenomenon worth a reported $46 million, that tidbit may come as a surprise. After all, the 26-year-old (whose name is pronounced â€œIts-See-Nessâ€?) has seemingly kept her media profile picture-perfect to fit her role: online personal trainer to 12 million followers on Facebook and 7 million on Instagram.
Like many Americans, Heather Robertson’s relationship with food at a young age influenced her weight in adulthood. “I was using food to cope, so whenever I got time by myself or got money, I was buying food to eat for myself, and I wasn’t particularly active,” 41-year-old Robertson, of Lakeland, Florida, told Fox News. Throughout her 20s and 30s, Robertson’s weight would fluctuate from 250 to 290 pounds as she tried fad diet after fad diet with limited success.
Ashley Graham, the plus-size model whoâ€™s a self-proclaimed body diversity ambassador, is at it again. The 29-year-old Sports Illustrated cover star shared a revealing behind-the-scenes photo from a recent shoot over the weekend with a snarky caption thatâ€™s catching media outletsâ€™ eyes. â€œWhen they call you â€˜braveâ€™â€Śâ€? she wrote sarcastically with the photo, which had garnered over 267,000 likes as of Monday morning.
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".
