Ella McKenzie is hard to miss. Even in a sea of peers, she stands out because of the way she looks. Ella McKenzie is a tugboat, but diminishing her simply to that feels somehow like a disservice. She is more of a Vancouver legend, a local celebrity. “It’s hilarious to drive around in Vancouver because she just turns heads; people are taking pictures constantly,” says Ella’s current owner Bourton Scott.
My friend once wrote an essay called Fancy Toothpaste. It was about intimacy more than clean teeth, but she equated the most elegant women as being like the tubes of luxurious toothpaste purchased at Nordstrom rather than the regular stuff found at drug stores. She asked for my opinion on her writing, so I happily gave her an edit. A little while later, she surprised me with a small tube of luscious, amazing fancy toothpaste. Whenever I see the colourful Marvis label, I think of her.
There is nothing more luxurious than the bespoke. An item made your way, just for you—it’s every customer’s dream. Louis Vuitton is giving its men a new way to feel special with its My LV Belt service.
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".
