Right around my early- to mid-20s, I started getting migraines out of the blue. I was at my first job working at a magazine and literally had to leave, go home and put myself to bed in a dark room because they were so debilitating. It got so out of control—once or twice a week—that I decided to see a neurologist. He immediately took me off caffeine and birth control and handed me a book called Heal Your Headache.
I’m a romantic at heart. So it’s no wonder that I lean toward wardrobe pieces that move with a little breeze or have feminine touches here and there. A ruffle is the epitome of romance if you ask me. It also happens to be a detail that carries over season to season, depending on how you style it. This summer I’ve fallen for a few favorites (including this blouse) that I plan on wearing well into the upcoming season.
With a sun-filled weekend ahead of us, we’re all probably itching to get to Friday. I know I am. With the excitement of parties or travel, it’s easy to forget the importance of being prepared for the sun. And no one wants to show up on Tuesday with an awkward burn, or skin that resembles a Louis Vuitton handbag 20 years from now. While I can get a few shades darker, I’m by no means someone who can tan well, and every year I’m reminded of that.
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".
