Even in the trash fire that has been the year of our lord 2017, the strict restrictions of corporate attire leave even the most stylish men with few options to express themselves. A favorite tie. A bold pocket square. Eye-catching dress socks. Signature sartorial cues can still make a lasting impact, and a good first impression in a sea of suits.
So you have a blunt friend (BF) and you’re not quite sure if they actually like you because they can never muster up enough strength to give you a little ‘ha ha’ to your jokes… sorry to tell you mate, but you’re clearly not that funny and they are obviously a friend because they don’t want you to embarrass yourself publicly.
German discount grocery store Lidl has been making the news as of late, helping create an all out price war among American grocery giants like Walmart (WMT) and Kroger (KR) . They're also dropping nine furniture items and ten decor items in US stores on November 2nd and 6th. The decor lookbook resembles that of IKEA, both in price and aesthetic. Stark, minimalist silhouettes are paired with softer accessories so you can get your winter hermit or hygge (essentially the Danish word for cozy) game on.
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".
