I’m going to start this review with a confession: I’m not an expert on the Marvel universe. I can’t weigh the pros and cons of all the various iterations of The Punisher. I can’t name all The X-Men. I can’t debate if Luke Cage or Jessica Jones is the better Marvel Netflix series. But that’s actually a good thing when it comes to reviewing Marvel’s Runaways. TV series should be able to invite the audience in assuming that they know nothing about the subject matter.
Why should adults have all the fun? The holiday season brings new TV series and specials for your children, too. We’ve made our list and checked it (more than) twice, and we think your children (ages 2-12) will find these TV shows very nice. Plus, if you can get them to sit in front of the TV for at least 30 minutes you might have time to address those holiday cards, wrap those presents, plan those big meals and maybe get a moment of peace. No judgment here! 1.
The barrage of news stories is unrelenting. I’ve never kept up with current events more than I have this past year. But even I sometimes have trouble remembering what happened a month ago. That’s because a month can seem like three years in Trump years. And it’s far too easy to forget the actual human beings behind tragic events. It puts a pit in my stomach to type this, but we have, I believe, become desensitized to death. To war. To mass shootings. Part of that is for self-preservation.
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".
