The work of Genius is never done. Following last night’s Season 1 finale of National Geographic Channel’s series about the life of Albert Einstein, Executive Producer Ron Howard and returning showrunner Ken Biller announced on a press call today that 2018's Season 2 will focus on artist Pablo Picasso. Starring Geoffrey Rush as Einstein, Genius Season 1 was the network's first in an anthology series revolving around great minds.
What's your all-time favorite sci-fi or horror movie? If you could act in any sci-fi franchise, what would it be? If you could only eat one kind of food for the rest of your life, what would it be? And, perhaps most importantly: What does 'science fiction' mean to you? These are but a few of the extremely important questions we asked the cast of Orphan Black in our latest Lightning Round. And they handled themselves quite nicely. Watch below.
What could possibly go wrong when ACME Laboratories starts fiddling around with animal and alien DNA to create mutant hybrids? Quite a lot if the somewhat unreliable products by ACME as seen in Looney Tunes are any indication. And in the first pages of the Lobo/Road Runner Special by DC Comics, the mad scientist minds at the labs are about to unleash some of those monsters on humanity -- including one coyote who looks a little wily.
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".
