Wondering if you should see the new Victoria & Abdul movie? I think it depends on what you’re looking for. I saw the new movie Victoria & Abdul a week ago and I still don’t know how to write a review of it. I feel like I need to write two. The first would aimed at people looking for a moving costume drama, people who want a fun night out, people who won’t drift into thinking about the massive exploitation heaped upon India, first by the British East India Company and then by Britain directly.
Echo Dots are great, but did you ever wish that yours had a louder speaker? Or that you could unplug your dot and use it somewhere else for a while? I’ve got a great solution for both of those problems that’s way cheaper than buying a full-sized Echo! This is the best speaker for Echo Dot. I love my Echo Dots. When I bought my first one I wasn’t quite ready to jump into a full-sized Echo, so the Dot was a good way to try out Alexa, Amazon’s digital assistant.
Last week I went to a conference in Atlanta called Type-A. One of the parties was sponsored by Disney, and it was a costume party. You didn’t have to wear a costume. The organizers made it clear that nobody should feel pressured. And I wasn’t planning on wearing one. I just had too much to do before the trip to bother about it. But then, two days before the conference, inspiration struck. For some reason Darla, from Finding Nemo, flashed into my brain. Remember Darla?
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".
