Last week was a time filled with celebration for Mary J. Blige. The “Strength of a Woman” singer turned 47 on Thursday, and on that same exact day, she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The honor, as most know, was long overdue. Even Blige had to point out that after almost 30 years in the music business, nine Grammys and 13 studio albums, she’s done star-worthy work for quite some time. “I’m so grateful for this star right now,” she said to the crowd last Thursday.
A common gripe for many of us is that there just isn’t enough time in the day to do everything. We have to work, we have to eat, we have to be social and we have to sleep. But where does a workout fit in our schedule? In the 24 hours we have, we often feel like we can’t fit in 20, 30 minutes a day to get moving. But the truth of the matter is, when things are important to us we can find time. We make the time.
When many think about weight loss, the hope at the beginning of one’s journey is that by the end, they’ll be in better health. Their body will be smaller, they will have more confidence and they will be in a place to not return to their previous way of eating and living. But for Olly Bey, her weight-loss transformation also came with a spiritual overhaul. The 32-year-old based out of London is Muslim, but she wasn’t committed to all that her faith required.
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".
