With the all the three-day-weekends coming up in January and February, there isn't enough time for a grand European vacation, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun at home! With websites like Tripadvisor, it’s easy as can be to see what tourists love doing in your town. You might find some interesting parks or small museums that are worth exploring! Go to Target! Get face masks, foot masks, scrubs and anything else your heart desires for a little pampering.
You know those celebrities that look like they became actors on accident? They were simply at the right place at the right time and made it big? That’s actually what happened to Robert Pattinson. He explained his journey from backup dancer in a drama club to household name during his solo panel at Vulture Festival (a pop culture extravaganza that took place in Hollywood on November 18th—19th, which included dozens of other actors speaking at panels about films and movies).
If your friend tells you something you are doing makes them feel uncomfortable–from cultural appropriation to using certain language–listen to them. It took guts for them to confront you, and they are being vulnerable with you about what is upsetting them. Listen and learn from what they tell you. It’s taxing for minorities to always explain why blackface is wrong and why the word “gay” is not a slur–especially if it’s pretty common to see on the internet.
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".
