These days, tuning into the news inevitably leads to frustration. From a violent Nazi “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville to Trump rescinding DACA, fundamental human rights in the U.S. are constantly under attack by the presidential administration, Congress and white supremacists across the nation. Yet, while the current political landscape can feel overwhelming at times and too much to bear, it’s also rife with opportunity to take action and drive change.
Senior year of high school is arguably one of the most stressful periods as a teenager. There’s immense pressure to balance schoolwork, college applications, and extracurricular activities while somehow getting enough sleep every night. Yet, Blessin Giraldo, Cori Grainger, and Tayla Solomon of the new documentary, Step , managed to pull it off even when they didn’t have food in the fridge or working lights at home.
Ever since I gained a significant amount of weight since my college days at NYU because of my emotional eating habits stemming from depression, the struggle for finding trendy and fashion-forward plus size clothing for my curvaceous body has been oh so real. If you’re a size 12+, you will understand my sentiment wholeheartedly.
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".
