Our last Campus Celeb for the year is HC Fordham’s very own Editor in Chief. Not only is she technically the HBIC, but she’s also a role model of mine. Alyssa has been someone I’ve come to look up to, with her laid back attitude, fierce sense of style, and ambitious accomplishments. Plus, she’s always there to help a girl out. All you have to do is read her interview to know she’d be a cool, wiser older sister. I know she’ll do just fine in post-grad life and hopefully I’ll work with her again soon.
In an effort to end global poverty by 2030, the Global Poverty Project started the Global Citizens Festival. Its third annual concert took place on Sept. 27th with headliners like Carrie Underwood, No Doubt, Jay-Z, and even Beyoncé made a special appearance (there were in fact tears of joy). Several celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde, and the oh-so-attractive Ryan Reynolds showed their support for the cause as well.
Over the years I’ve come to understand what Elle Woods meant when she referred to Cosmopolitan as the bible in Legally Blonde. I think it has the perfect combination of love, work, and social life for the average young female. They have a strong voice when speaking for women everywhere to be independent, confident, and own the lives they lead, as well as providing the fashion and beauty tips they need to achieve it.
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".
