Duke Nukem 3D is one of the most influential games of the past 25 years, and for good reason. The Build Engine, which powered the game, created a sort of “2.5D” effect, allowing worlds built using the technology to feel much more realistic and dynamic than what we were used to seeing in the Doom engine. And the Build Engine was put through a workout with Duke Nukem 3D; the game launched with a series of levels filled with interactive elements and hidden secrets.
There are two groups of people who follow pop culture: Those who don’t recognize the name Doug Jones, and those who adore him and his work. I have yet to meet anyone who falls in another group, even if Google’s search results are dominated by the politician. Doug Jones is invisible, but he is everywhere. If you watch fantasy or science fiction movies and TV shows, you know his work. He was the thin clown in Batman Returns, and Mac Tonight from the classic McDonald’s commercials.
Conventionally attractive straight people have been marginalized for too long, and it’s finally time for them to fight back and take what’s rightfully theirs. That seems to be the theme of the upcoming Heathers TV reboot, which seems to take the dark comedy film from 1988 and pumps it through the beating heart of the Trump presidency to provide a power fantasy for those already in power. Rebooting the movie at all is a bad idea, but this angle adds a whole ‘nother layer of failure.
I'm baffled by the lay-offs at Cracked. The site paid next to nothing for a lot of the listicles it ran, and traffic seemed to be through the roof. It feels like there's something missing to the story? Anyone with a head for publishing have any insights into what went wrong?
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".
