Laura Dodsworth's latest project 'Manhood' involved photographing the penises of 100 men. But it wasn't her her first time taking pictures of intimate body parts. Before Manhood came Bare Reality - where Laura interviewed 100 anonymous women and took pictures of their chests. She wanted to explore the dichotomy between how we feel about breasts privately and how they are presented for public consumption. It opened up a lot of interesting conversations about femininity, motherhood and sexuality.
Ever feel frustrated that your ability to sleep has declined as you've got older? You used to lie in for hours at the weekend as a teenager, but now it's impossible to get back to slumber after waking very early. We're betting a lot of you do. But now scientists may have pinpointed why a good night's kip becomes more elusive with age. It could be an evolutionary survival trait that helped keep our ancestors alive.
How rigorous are you at applying sun protection? A new study from the University of Liverpool has found that many of us fail to put sunscreen on our faces properly - despite the face being a very common site for skin cancer. More than 90% of the most common skin cancer in the UK occurs on the head or neck, and between 5% and 10% of all skin cancers appear on the eyelids. Experts are warning that a failure to apply sunscreen around the eye area is putting people at risk.
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".
