Condé Nast on Monday announced it has tapped Radhika Jones, a former TIME editor, to be the new editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair. Jones will be the magazine’s fifth editor-in-chief since its 1983 revival, Condé Nast said in a news release. The 44-year-old will succeed Graydon Carter, who is stepping down after spending 25 years at the helm. Jones’ new role begins Dec. 11. “There is nothing else out there quite like Vanity Fair,” Jones said in a statement.
The Reader Center is a newsroom initiative that is helping The Times build deeper ties with our audience. In this piece, Radhika Jones, the editorial director of the books section, responds to readers who criticized a roundup of this season’s romance novels.
But Austen never killed off a major character. The absence is striking in light of the 19th-century works that followed hers, in the genre she helped pioneer — novels by Dickens, the Brontës, George Eliot in which death begins as much as it ends. Death creates orphans, the Victorians’ sprightly vehicle for social mobility — Oliver Twist, say, and Jane Eyre. The death of a parent could open the door to poverty, neglect and abuse or — a happier plot point — inheritance.
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".
