George Clooney sold his tequila company Casamigos for $1 billion exactly. Yes, you read that right; 1 billion dollars! The company who made the purchase said it will initially pay $700 million, with the potential for another $300 million over the course of a year or so. Casamigos was originally only available to Clooney’s close friends and family before he started selling to the public. And obviously, it grew from there. Clooney said he will celebrate the deal with a shot or two. How fitting.
It’s funny how life works. I was just asking myself where Cameron Diaz has been, and sure enough, she’s popped up. In a recent interview, she talks about why it seems she has disappeared from the spotlight. Cameron says she woke up at 40 and felt like she didn’t know who she was. She had been working since her teen years as a model and then as a major movie star actress. She’s dated the biggest of stars in Hollywood, including Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto, and Matt Dillon; each for 5 years.
You may remember Chris Soules from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. In tragic news, on Monday night we found out that he rear-ended a tractor on a dark road in Iowa, injuring the other driver. That man was 66-year-old farmer Kenneth Mosher. It doesn’t appear that Mr. Mosher tractor had lights, and the collision happened around 8:30 pm. Early reports suggested that Chris fled the scene. Now we’re finding out that Chris did call 911 immediately.
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".
