“Even if what I had heard about him was more of industry gossip, the adage that where there’s smoke there is fire comes to mind. I went in thinking, if he makes an inappropriate proposition, I am simply going to be diplomatic and say we can talk about it after the interview, after which I will receive a fake phone call and bolt from his office.” Luckily for her, she says, he stayed in his business lane, leaving her with no tangible proof of his alter reputation.
Motorsports remains a predominantly male. In 2012, there were about 15 women involved in rallying events, but that that number has decreased. One day in 2011, Tuta Mionki woke up with the awareness that that would be the day she would finally resign from her job in HR. She had had a successful career working for companies such as Kenya Airways, BAT, ZTE and Java House among others, rising to managerial positions. In one corner of Tuta’s living room is a table that resembles a shelf in a trophy shop.
“I agree that men might be driven to slut-shame because of jealousy especially when pitted against what they perceive to be a superior (richer) competitor,” Grace Nabuso says, “but I think women do it to each other because whenever I criticise something, I subconsciously place myself in a more superior moral standing. It’s ‘Oh, at least I am not a slut like her!’” Chris Mutinda agrees with defence mechanism argument.
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".
