The dinner table is not just a physical place, but a cultural touchstone. It’s an emotional nexus that resonates at a different frequency for every family. For some, it’s represents a bond that holds blood relatives together. But it can also be a cudgel, excavating wounds that reverberate through generations. Throughout Queen Sugar, the Bordelons have had both tense and heartfelt conversations at their dinner table.
Now more than halfway through its second season, Lifetime’s addictive, occasionally subversive drama UnREAL has waded into the fraught conversation about race in America and police brutality — and it’s drowning. In the past, UnREAL has proven to be intelligent in handling thorny subject matter despite its initial premise — a series depicting a mentally unstable feminist TV producer of a Bachelor-esque reality show called Everlasting — until one of the Black characters gets shot by the police.
Wonder Woman created waves when it arrived last month, and that current is probably strong enough to give Professor Marston and the Wonder Women the push it needs come October. Based on the true story of the character’s creator(s), the lives they led, and all the decisions and points of view that resulted in the Diana Prince we know, this film sure has chosen its moment. "A person is most happy when they are submissive to loving authority."
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".
