There’s nothing more annoying when you’re speaking passionately about a subject and someone picks up on the way you’re speaking, rather the content of your speech. There will be some men who have never experienced that but it’s unlikely there are any women who don’t know what I mean. For every teenage boy who is freely allowed to go about their daily business by society, there’s a teenage girl who gets pulled up every time she says “shit”, “fuck” or in Millie Bobby Brown’s case “bitchin”.
Alcohol-related deaths are increasing everywhere except (predictably) London, according to new figures. Data released by the Office for National Statistics shows deprived areas are the hardest hit, with men from deprived areas 4.5 times more likely to have an alcohol-specific death than the least deprived areas. For women, it was 3.3 times. London was the only English region that had fewer alcohol-specific deaths between 2001 and 2016.
Why do they love black? Why are they always vegan? And why are they so weird? Goths have a reputation for being gloomy, reading books about vampires and listening to Siouxsie and the Banshees. But what’s behind all that eyeliner and black lace? We grabbed a bunch of goths – Elz, Tim Sinister, Lindsay Ashford, Lisa-Rose Clarke, Kat Sparling and Emma Gallimore-Martin – and they answered all the ignorant questions that we were too embarrassed to ask.
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".
