Children couldn't care less that playtime supports cognitive development, spurs creativity and releases endorphins, the body’s feel-good chemicals. They just know it’s fun.Serious adults might need more convincing. Engaging in carefree activities for pure enjoyment relieves stress, boosts creativity and improves brain function — for adults as well as children. Play can improve your ability to communicate, trust others, empathize and roll with the punches.
These days, to make it as an artist you have to have grit and business acumen, and be really, really freaking interesting on social media. Artist Elizabeth “Liz” Sutton has all three. She not only has the talent, but her honesty is what racks up her followers and sales. Her captions are a cross between life lesson, mini diaries and shoutouts to other young female-owned business.
On the closing night of Miami’s annual Art Basel, Patricia Field put on her second “art fashion” runway show. However, she doesn’t want to call it a collection, because she thinks of it as a set of unique pieces. Patricia Field was the mastermind behind the iconic looks of Sex and the City, and she even won an Emmy award for it. Each runway show of hers is set of unique pieces, so she prefers not to call it a collection.
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".
