Chip Gaines and wife Joanna Gaines became stars with their HGTV series, Fixer Upper. Now in his book, Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff, Chip shares the story of how he got where he is, ponders what life might be like after the series ends, and what makes him jump out of bed in the morning. Q: Tell us the story behind the somewhat unconventional photo choice on the cover of your book. I ask because I think it says a lot about who you are and your philosophies on life.
Laila Ali shared her thoughts on Halloween, raising ambitious and confident children with husband Curtis, and her new project to help women embrace their uniqueness. Q: What are your Halloween plans? Has everyone picked out their costumes? My kids [Curtis and Sydney] have switched up their outfit ideas multiple times but have finally made a decision, so they say! We usually go trick or treating in the neighborhood and hand out candy to trick or treaters!
Every great journey begins with curiosity, and old family photos are what piqued mine. For years I used to lose myself in the evocative sepia-toned images of my great-grandparents, aunts and uncles and wonder: Who were these people who make up my tribe? What were their stories? As a mother, it was important to me that my son and daughter understand where they came from. What I did know: I’m the daughter of Edna and Arthur Rust Jr., a writer and sportscaster, respectively.
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".
