Next time you're ordering your daily Caramel Macchiato , stop to notice what color Starbucks apron your barista and cashier are wearing. If you assumed it will always be that signature green shade, think again. It turns out that there are hidden codes in the different colors the baristas wear. (Mystery! Intrigue! Dan Brown, can't wait to read your bestseller about it.) Although most employees don the green, there are also black, orange, red, or even purple aprons behind those coffee counters.
Nothing reminds us of the '90s more than a Lisa Frank design. Arguably the OG of unicorn style, Lisa Frank Trapper Keepers, folders, and any other school supplies our moms would buy us were all among our unicorn-besotted treasure trove. Obviously, 2017 is the year that the psychedelic animal designs would make a comeback (because everything that was cool in 2007 is back ten years later), and Target has heard our rainbow-colored prayers: A collection of Lisa Frank pajamas is now available.
Last week, Rihanna graced the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in a gorgeous millennial pink Giambattista Valli dress that instantly got the internet talking. And now she's continuing the trend by wearing another dress by the same designer, this time for the London premiere of the sci-fi movie.
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".
