Looking back at 2017 is fine, but who needs hindsight when you can have the benefit or foresight, thanks to Pinterest? The company just released its 2018 forecast—a prime indicator of what we'll be wearing, buying, eating, using, and doing next year. In terms of fashion , the top 10 trends poised to be big in 2018 include items we've seen on the runway (patent leather, lucite), on the red carpet (side slits), on the street (logos, berets ), and on each other (a return to classic blue jeans.)
An incredible winter coat or cashmere sweater is an investment, so of course we’d want to protect it. Yet how exactly to care for our winter clothes seems to be a mystery. Should everything be dry cleaned? Can anything be put in the wash? What about the dryer? What if you try to clean it by hand? Not to mention, it can be scary to touch your favorite pieces, like you might ruin them if you try.
At the top of the "Today" show, anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb delivered the message to viewers, revealing NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack wrote in a staff memo that there was a "complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer." Though it was the first complaint made against the journalist and morning host during his 25-year career with NBC, Lack wrote "we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident."
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".
