While the ramifications of the Disney buyout of 20th Century Fox’s film and television divisions are far-reaching, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans can rejoice because the Fantastic Four are finally headed back home. It’s been a rough road for Marvel’s First Family, with their very first film never even making it to the screen and subsequent entries being greeted with lukewarm to downright scathing responses. Despite fears that the team, consisting of Reed Richards (Mr.
Warning: SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ahead. If anything has confounded fans of the galaxy far, far away, it’s Force ghosts, something J.J. Abrams should address in Star Wars Episode IX. Ever since Obi-Wan Kenobi first instructed his young ward, Luke Skywalker, from beyond the grave in the original Star Wars, the narrative took on a surreal layer.
Does Star Trek: Discovery have a problem with all its classic references? Many modern versions of classic franchises – in particular, science fiction like Star Wars and Dr. Who – love to slip an array of Easter Eggs and to their own history into their shows, and Discovery went all in. The first half of the season contained fun nods like the bookcase in Captain Georgiou’s ready room on the U.S.S. Shenzhou and major ones like the Federation’s early dealings with Harcourt Fenton Mudd.
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".
