In the searing, Sundance-anointed drama Mudbound (in limited theatrical release and on Netflix November 17), Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell portray World War II veterans making the uneasy transition from combat duty to civilian life in 1940s Mississippi.
In the dark and distant past, I called myself a laser physicist. I would speak with pride of lasers that produced incredible power: the thought of a petawatt laser system would bring a tear to my remaining eye. But I have to admit that our best hardware is relatively wimpy when compared to natural sources of energy that output far more power. Of course, it is really hard to convince a neutron star to sit in the lab and not destroy the planet.
Ever since LIGO (and now Virgo) started picking up gravitational waves, theorists have gone nuts. The volume of papers on exciting possibilities seems to grow faster than the disk space available to accommodate them. If I were sensible, I would probably ignore them. But I'm not, and you, dear reader, will suffer along with me. When two black holes collide and merge, they emit gravitational waves, but we don't expect them to emit light. But is that really true?
@LostChildLA@VanityFair here is a US Census Bureau estimate that indicates between 2011-15 Hidden Hills had zero African-American residents (with a 2.1 percent margin of error) https://t.co/Qf2FHNQkB2 It was somehow incorrectly hyperlinked in the story
Here's one of my last freelance stories for @VanityFair (written months ago): I infiltrate #HiddenHills, the sleepy LA neighborhood that Kimye, Drake, Jaden Smith, Kylie, Miley and the Weeknd are taking over https://t.co/FSdJVAMsWf
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".
