We were all pretty mind-blown when we learned that Kate Middleton's secret to flawless looking skin involved everyone's favorite sweet treat. But at the same time, it made us all the more curious to know about what her other beauty secrets might be. For example, how does she get her hair to look so effortlessly smooth? And how does she manage to balance the right amount of makeup without going over the top?
It's never fun to see the best characters get killed or written off of TV shows. But believe it or not, many of those plot twists only happen because celebrities like Sophie Turner and Jared Padalecki actually wanted their characters to be taken out of the series. Now, if we had our way, none of our fictional favorites would suddenly disappear out of nowhere. However, we'll just have to face the harsh reality that sometimes, celebrities need to move on and pursue other opportunities.
Moving on from an ex is never easy to do, and sometimes it's definitely something people don't want to do. Yes, of course there are those who decide to cope by distancing themselves from the dating scene altogether, but some decide to internalize that loss by dating their exes double. And that doesn't just refer to us normals: there's no shortage of celebrities that preferred to rebound with their ex's doppelgänger. A primo example?
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".
