They go by many names: travelers, gypsies, nomads and rubber tramps. They’ll accept “vandwellers” — it’s a statement of fact — and even houseless. But don’t you dare call them homeless. For her new book “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century” (Norton), Columbia University journalism professor Jessica Bruder immersed herself in the lives of a fringe but rapidly growing demographic: those who have given up their traditional homes in exchange for trailers, campers and RVs.
This morning, Soho’s Galleria Melissa hosted its first-ever fashion show to celebrate the playful Brazilian footwear company's latest collaboration with Baja East, the New York-based “loose luxury” brand headed by Scott Studenberg and John Targon. The theme of the show was “thriving,” and it featured a glowy and diverse cast of models dressed in Baja East’s signature beach-meets-street aesthetic, inflected with 90’s-era fabrics like crushed velvet, violet and gold lamé.
Nadja Swarovski, the great-great-granddaughter of Daniel Swarovski, the company’s founder, knows that the decision to use lab-grown diamonds in a new line of Atelier Swarovski fine jewelry might surprise people. But as she says, it’s actually quite consistent with her great-great-grandfather’s mission when he started cutting crystals in 1895. “He wanted all women to experience what it felt like to wear diamonds,” she explains.
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".
