Staring into a camera lens, Mila Stauffer sports a look of grave concern on her little, chubby-cheeked face. “I saw Sawyer at the park with another girl. I was so mad,” she declares. She’s wearing a sparkly, velvet dress. A ponytail sprouts from the top of her head. Because Mila is not a teenage girl grappling with boy issues. She is a three-year-old, pretending to be. Even if you don’t know her name, you’ve almost definitely seen her on your social media feeds.
The hardest part about the gym isn’t the workout part. It’s the bit that comes before: getting there. Dragging your arse over when you’re knackered from work and you can think of a gazillion other things you’d rather be doing (… like napping, watching The Sinner, hanging out with your partner or eating peanut butter out of the jar). I’ve had days where I wake up with the best of intentions but by lunch time, I know the gym simply isn’t happening. Worse?
If you were to pass by 29-year-old Rebecca* wearing her favourite unicorn T-shirt, you probably wouldn’t think anything of it. But to the trained eye? It’s an inside joke. Rebecca is what you call a “unicorn”. Not the mystical horse-like creature, but a “rarity” in her own way: a person who has sex with couples. “I’m bisexual, so I like getting the best of both worlds at once,” she tells Mamamia. “I don’t see the point in not being sexually free.
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".
