When the adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale (available on CraveTV starting July 28) hit the small screen this year, it created a tidal wave of online chatter that led to the first season earning an incredible 13 Emmy nominations. Already renewed for a second season, Atwood’s dystopian novel focusing on the fictional Gilead feels alarmingly relevant in 2017.
Calling off a wedding is never an easy thing to do, but one couple in Indianapolis has taken their painful experience and turned it into an amazing event for the homeless. Sarah Cummins is a 25 year-old Pharmacy student at Purdue University. She and her now ex-fiancé, Logan Araujo, had saved for two years to afford their $30,000 dream wedding. But only one week before the event at the Ritz Charles in Carmel, the pair decided to call things off.
One of the most exciting TV shows to premiere last year was the family drama This Is Us. The time-hopping series scored an incredible 11 Emmy nominations last week thanks to its heartfelt and socially conscious discussions on family, race, body size, and relationships. One of the most unique qualities of This Is Us is its multi-timeline angle.
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".
