Could you look into the camera and state your name and the date?” the man with the minicam asks the reporter with the tape recorder. ”I’m documenting everything.”No, he isn’t a special prosecutor.
Roger Moore, the rakish English actor who turned a raised eyebrow into a cinematic art form, died Tuesday in Switzerland after what his family called a “short but brave battle with cancer.” He was 90. Moore, of course, was best known for replacing Sean Connery as 007; he played the secret agent in seven films over 12 years, starting with 1973’s Live and Let Die and ending with 1985’s A View to a Kill.
If you watch only one speech at this year's Peabody Awards — and there will be plenty, from Norman Lear accepting a lifetime achievement honor to Ava DuVernay picking up a prize for her documentary 13th to Frontline winning for a report on ISIS — the one to wait for would be Pamela Adlon's. She hasn't written it yet ("I have no idea what I'm going to say," she offers), but the 50-year-old star and co-creator (with Louis C.K.) of FX's Better Things is seldom at a loss for words.
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".
