Reggaetón Meets Dior: New York Fashion Week With J Balvin
Let us take a moment to send loving thoughts to our dear Zac Efron, who on Thursday, shared some tragic news. Manâ€™s best friend â€” and his â€” passed away. Efron shared a photo of him and one of his dogs, an Australian Shepherd called simply, â€œPuppy.â€? In the caption, he wrote: â€œThrough thick and thin youâ€™ve always been my best friend. Iâ€™ll see you at the finish line, RIP Puppy Efron.â€?
Clothing companies, beware: If you're thinking of putting any text on a kid's T-shirt, you're likely going to screw up. Or at the very least, face the ire of the internet. That's the situation Old Navy finds itself in after Twitter users discovered a children's T-shirt displaying the slogan "Young Aspiring Artist" with the word "Artist" is crossed out — and replaced with the words "Astronaut" or "President."
June 15 began as any typical Wednesday begins â€” that is, until The Sun published photos of Taylor Swift shaking off her past relationship with Calvin Harris, the Scottish DJ sheâ€™d been seeing for 15 months. As in, The Sun published an â€œexclusiveâ€? series of photos of Swift and Tom Hiddleston smooching away atop some rocks on a beach in Rhode Island. I leave the Internet for just two hours and my whole world implodes. What is #hiddleswift and why is it happening?
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".
