On the morning of November 20, 1943, elements of the Second Marine Division boarded tracked landing vehicles (amtracs) and headed for the beaches of Betio, a part of the Tarawa Atoll. The Marines wanted to clear the island of Japanese forces and get their airfield. It took 76 hours to capture the two-mile-long island, but they paid a terrible price. Correspondent Robert Sherrod, a 34-year-old Georgia native was covering the operation for Time magazine.
The 2018 World Series title may have been decided on Jan. 13. That’s because the defending champion Houston Astros landed one of the most coveted pitchers in the game, Gerrit Cole, from the Pittsburgh Pirates in a blockbuster trade. The Astros are deep enough to withstand losing the players they traded — third base prospect Colin Moran, starter Joe Musgrove, and reliever Michael Feliz.
Traditionally, movies that are going to be “blockbuster films” are released over the summer or toward the end of the year as awards buzz is heating up. But studios want to change that and start releasing major films, like Steven Spielberg’s The Sugarland Express in the spring. Spring has largely been considered a kind of “dead zone” in Hollywood’s release calendar.

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".
