Streaming giant Netflix has been forced to pull an episode of a children’s television show after a parent noticed a very x-rated image hidden in the background of a scene. The mother shared the image on Facebook (her post has since been deleted), writing that she was shocked to discover what appeared to be a drawing of a penis in one of the episodes. “Please be mindful of what your kids are watching. I did NOT edit any images whatsoever, this is Maya the Bee Season 1, Episode 35,” she wrote.
Yesterday, former Prime Minister and vocal supporter of voting no in the same-sex marriage plebiscite, Tony Abbott, was ‘headbutted’ by a man in Hobart. At the same time, his 26-year-old daughter, Frances, was “so excited” to tick the yes box when her postal survey arrived in her mailbox. “It’s here. I just got my hair done. I am in second hand PJ pants I bought from the Salvos today on the way to the tanning salon… I open the mail box and start jumping up and down like Christmas.
It’s been two and a half weeks since the world learned that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting royal baby number three, and the hype has yet to settle down. There’s been discussion about whether Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be welcoming a brother or sister, conversation about baby names and, of course, speculation about when exactly the 35-year-old is due. And thanks to a massive hint dropped by Prince William this week, we may be one step closer to solving that mystery.
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".
