A week ago, Microsoft released the Xbox One X. The so-called “most powerful console of all time” can enhance your Xbox library with crystal-clear 4K visuals and jacked up performance ratings. Assassin’s Creed: Origins has never looked so good... unless you have a good gaming PC. For those looking to Black Friday 2017 as a way to get a deal on the Xbox One X, we’ve got some bad news.
All the way back in September, GameStop announced its PowerPass program. Essentially, it turned your local GameStop into a video game library. For $60 (the price of one new video game), you got six months worth of access to any pre-owned games in the store, with the stipulation that you could only rent one at a time. After six months, you could keep one of the games. It was a decent way to incentivize going to GameStop rather than just downloading all of your games.
Search for Spock: A ‘Star Trek’ Book of Exploration by Robb Pearlman is the latest fun addition to your Star Trek library. In the same vein of Pearlman’s earlier works, Fun with Kirk and Spock and Redshirts Little Book of Doom, this book is appropriate for both adults and children. Even as an adult without any children, I found a lot to enjoy! Search for Spock most closely resembles the classic Where’s Waldo? series, but with a Star Trek twist.
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".
