How do we raise positive-thinking children in a body-shaming world? A recent survey by The Be Real Campaign found that two out of three secondary-age schoolkids worry about their appearance, while a US survey last year discovered that children as young as five say they don’t like their bodies. To break the cycle of negative body image and help children feel comfortable and happy about the way they look, we need to change the dialogue around image, particularly as parents .
A new exhibition in Edinburgh shows the faces of Scotland’s Victorian crooks. The mugshots are the centrepiece of Rogues Gallery: Faces of Crime 1870 -1917 which goes on show today. The fascinating images sit alongside trial papers from the Victorian and Edwardian eras and give a rare insight into the courtrooms and the characters - from robbers and embezzlers to petty thieves, in Scotland’s criminal underworld at that time.
To the other shoppers in the busy supermarket, we sounded like teenagers heading to a Justin Bieber gig, screeching and giggling instead of the middle-aged, responsible mums we actually (mostly) are. But our hysteria was nothing to do with being Beliebers, it was because we were mamas who had no kids in tow and two whole days of freedom ahead of us. Yes, we were a tad excited. Before checking into our hot tub lodge for a weekend of fun and relaxation, we had stopped off at the shops to stock up.
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".
