Over a crackling phone line that is very much reminiscent of a 90s dial up modem, Matt Ross insists that he wasn’t tricking anyone when he named his movie Captain Fantastic, especially given that “we live in a culture now that is entirely dominated by superhero movies”. The actor-director, best known for his role in the TV series Silicon Valley, as the antagonistic tech titan Gavin Belson, says that calling it so was intentional, as it makes us question if parenting is a heroic act.
It’s hard to pin down the appeal of IndiEarth XChange, considering it’s known as a trade event for independent music, film and media. But to phone-toting, Snapchat-obsessed millennial regulars, who are drawn by the sound and stay for the energy late into the night, it has always been a party.
How many times have we heard parents, family members, friends and the media proclaim that 'Delhi is unsafe for women'? Now, Thomson Reuters Foundation's latest poll seems to confirm what we've been telling each other all along — that Delhi is indeed unsafe. The poll, which surveyed 380 experts on women's issues, ranked the national capital as the worst among 19 megacities for sexual violence and harassment of women alongside Sao Paulo. Which makes this poll based on perceptions and not solid data.
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".
