The morning before a massive awards show like the Emmys, most celebs are running around putting the finishing touches on their dresses and hammering out the details of the acceptance speeches they might be lucky enough to give. But not Nicole Kidman. The Big Little Lies star, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie, had the right idea — relaxing in an urban Los Angeles garden and sipping Earl Grey from a fancy porcelain teacup.
“Do you want to bathe the dog or clean the crate?” My husband, Greg, asked while turning the key to open our front door. “I’ll put him right in the tub,” I cooed before giving him a kiss and springing to action. We walked into a very familiar scene. Rocky, our 4-month-old Rat Terrier, had pooped in his crate and of course stepped in it and … well you get the picture. This was a common scenario in our house for many months. We were on our last nerves.
“America is in the middle of a sexual revolution and the rules are constantly changing,” says Vanessa Grigoriadis, who authored the recently released Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus, noting that today’s music stars play a crucial role.
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".
