It's Labor Day weekend, and that means only one thing: fall is officially here . Instead of mourning the loss of summer, instead turn your attention to the ultimate perk of the changing seasons: a brand new wardrobe. And where better to start than a great pair of shoes to revamp your footwear collection? An investment piece that will carry you through until spring, a new fall shoe is arguably the most worthwhile wardrobe update. This season, designers turned out an array of extremes.
Slip dressing and lingerie-inspired looks have been prominent on the runway and in street style for the past few seasons, but the young hopefuls attending the call back casting for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show stepped it up a notch this past week as they paired sheer pieces with lace camisoles and denim on the hot and sweaty streets of New York. Bodysuits were paired with denim shorts, and crop tops were worn with embellished jeans and boots.
Spring Training is around the corner, as some teams pitchers and catchers have already begun to report to their respective teams. That also means that Fantasy Baseball owners are shaking off the cobwebs and pulling out the cheat sheets, as they get ready to do another draft … or 12. This handful of Fantasy Baseball books will put you well on your way to a winning season. No doubt about it.
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".
