Baby talk ranks, for me, on the general awfulness scale somewhere between people chewing loudly and the apocalypse. So forgive me that I couldn’t stomach the idea of watching all of last night’s episode of Taboo. The National Geographic Channel show, now in its seventh season, featured a man named Stanley who, in the privacy of his own home, dresses and behaves like a baby. Eating in a high chair, drinking out of a bottle, and (shudder) speaking like baby — the works.
Week 8 of of EW’s 2011 Summer Movie Body Count continues with Cars 2 as Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater race back to the big screen for more merchandise-friendly action, while some of their co-stars get sent to the big chop shop in the sky. But, much like the world of auto racing there are certain rules that you must abide by, so be sure to read up on our guidelines. Warning: Dangerous curves and spoilers ahead!
When director Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s award-winning documentary “Blackfish”was released in 2013, it sparked nothing short of an animal rights revolution. The film, which unflinchingly captured the conditions in which captive orca whales were kept at SeaWorld parks, struck a nerve with animal lovers and propelled major changes after public outcry. Most recently, SeaWorld announced that it would phase out trained orca shows entirely and will no longer breed them in captivity.
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".
