Anyone who has seen The Mindy Project would agree that Dr. Mindy Lahiri is one of the best female protagonists on TV. She's an adult fangirl, she has a love affair with junk food, she's unapologetically honest, and she can come up with clever pop culture references like it's nobody's business. She also has her impulsive moments when life throws lemons her way, but at least she knows how to channel her inner warrior, aka Beyoncé Pad Thai, and turn them into lemonade.
Going door to door for free treats with your kids is by far one of the best parts of celebrating Halloween, but what makes it even more fun is family themed costumes! Celebrity parents like Mariah Carey and Jennifer Garner understand this all too well, and they're not afraid to flaunt those festive costumes while taking their kids trick-or-treating!
It might just be us, but as soon as September hits and Labor Day passes, we're pretty much ready for Halloween. Creepy crafts, pumpkin-spice everything, and all that candy you could want — what more is there to ask for? Well, there is one thing — a good costume, of course. But putting together the perfect Halloween get-up isn't always as easy as it sounds. And when you want to find a way to match with your BFF, coming up with ideas can prove even trickier.
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".
