The year was 1999, I was 15, and Brandy had just been named as the newest spokesmodel for CoverGirl . The actual news wasn't quite on my radar, but when I started to see her face even more—on covers of magazines like Seventeen and Teen People (I subscribed to both) as well as on drugstore aisle makeup kiosks—the impact was even more lasting.
Sure, we know that sun exposure, dehydration and general aging leads to wrinkles. But what about those other seemingly-harmless habits that are also contributing to the cause, like sipping through a drinking straw? Beauty-wise, we've always thought straws fought off teeth stains, but is this very regular habit actually prematurely aging the skin around the mouth?
Kerr mason jars in bulk, flame-colored Le Creuset pots, a Dazey Atomic Rocket manual ice crusher, bottled spices (both backyard-garden variety and McCormick): These are just a few of the preserved items lining the pantry shelves in Georgia O'Keeffe's Abiquiú, New Mexico home. As one of America's most iconic painters, she put forth a restrained image in her pared-down painting style and habit-like wardrobe, most recently on display at the Brooklyn Museum 's Living Modern exhibit.
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".
