I can distinctly remember the moment, 6 years ago, when I decided to stop wearing denim. I was in a New York dressing room with my mom, who, after a lovely ladies lunch, said she would buy me a pair of jeans. There I was, 360-degree mirrors in all their glory, watching myself jump up and down, trying to literally squeeze my ass into a pair of skinny jeans. I remember having to keep on going up and up in sizing since everything at that time was so tight and sizing SO not in my favor.
From the day we were born we have been hearing various people in our lives (parents, teachers, bosses, to just name a few) to remember to always be nice. While it may seem like a cliché, I truly believe that the simple act of just being nice can get you much further along in your career, as well as life, than you would expect. As a business owner, how people interact with others on the team is the number one thing I look out for.
Hi there! I’m Stephanie, one of the founders of Coveteur, and welcome to my column. I am launching it so that I can have the chance to interact and share my (various) life experiences with all of you! Hope you enjoy. I thought it would be best to dive into something deeply personal (why start off light?) and talk about my recent struggle with adult acne. I was lucky enough to breeze through high school virtually pimple-free. In my mind, if I didn’t have acne as a teen, then I would never get it.
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".
