Thankfully, this year will give us even more complicated, empowering women on television. And, many of them will be played by movie stars like Dakota Fanning and Tiffany Haddish, meaning these characters will probably be obsession-worthy — it's not like anyone is luring true A-listers to the small screen with sub-par stories. So, before you start hearing about these new television characters everywhere, we decided to track them down early.
Barden, who’s been playing Alyssa since TEOTFW was a 2014 short film, appreciated how the scene complicates her character. Yes, the teen was right to put a stop to an unwanted hookup, but she wouldn’t have been in the unwanted situation if she hadn’t set out to use Topher in the first place. “You see men being the people who lead women on in pop culture,” Barden said. “But, she did that to Topher. She uses him … Women are like men as well, we make mistakes, but then you can fix it just as quickly.
There's a moment in Noel Gallagher's Desert Island Discs that sums up the trouble many British men have talking about their emotions. "A poverty-stricken childhood is one thing," host Kirsty Young tells the Mancunian musician, who grew up working-class and then made millions with Oasis, "but it's not the case that everybody's subject to a significant amount of violence from their dad." Noel replies: "I don't write about it in my songs, I've never felt the need to go and see somebody about it.
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".
