You love your significant other. You understand each other. You share interests. You’re in tune. But for the love of them, and all that is holy, no amount of #boydonegood Instagrams can excuse a his ‘n’ hers get-up. Prince William and Kate Middleton – we hope you’re reading this, because you two have form. The latest in a long line of celebrities to coordinate looks, the future king is nowadays rarely seen in a tie that doesn’t complement his wife’s dress. What a royal mess.
With the advent of the internet (and with it, PornHub and Tinder), we’ve never been more sexually liberated. Just as we’re getting free and easy to do whatever we pleasey, however, a new report shows less positive growth for the very stuff at the source of it all: our semen. According to troubling new stats from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, reviewed data from over 185 different studies showed a 59 per cent decline in sperm counts in richer countries.
Even the word ‘moustache’ is enough to cause a shudder. The once cool grooming trend was thought to have died with the likes of Freddie Mercury, only to be consigned to sex offender registries from then on – something that may well be changing if Tinseltown has anything to do with it. Recently, a slew of celebrities – namely Dawson’s Creek alumnus James Van Der Beek – have been seen sporting some top lip topiary. And it actually looks, dare we say it, pretty good.
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".
