"In fashion, you could be in a room with six abusers at once. They're all covering each other's backs," reveals veteran casting director James Scully. "Unfortunately that's why I had to start calling people out, and will continue to do so if I have to, because that was the only way to break the cycle."
If you saw someone being aggressively catcalled, what would you do? Say something? Do nothing? What if you noticed a young woman looking uncomfortable as a man seated next to her put his hand on her upper thigh? Would you ask if she was okay? A new interactive online game called Decisions that Matter, built by students at Carnegie Mellon University, is attempting to help you answer these questions.
The first thing I notice when I walk into Chelsea Handler's Los Angeles office is a framed email exchange between the comedian and Gloria Steinem. Dated April, 2017, after the pair appeared onstage together at the live conversation series, TimesTalks, Handler thanks Steinem for "always showing up". In her reply, the feminist icon wastes no time pointing out the extraordinary chutzpah that Handler possesses.
Very proud to provide the platform for these incredibly moving stories—and the powerful message behind them. Thank you @ModelAllianceNY for making this video possible, and to the brave, bad-ass women who spoke out. https://t.co/xAvIcCcDOs
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".
