To commemorate the anniversary of his father’s death, UK writer Nate Crowley decided to get together with one of his friends and have a Lord of the Rings movie marathon. But he wouldn’t simply be binging the three, epic, hours-long films, he’d also be binging food. To really do his old man proud, Crowley took the viewing party up another level by creating a 14-course menu so that he and his pal would be eating in parallel with characters on screen.
The Village People urge in the opening of their iconic “YMCA,” “young man, there’s no need to feel down.” But a baby named Ryan from Texas is not following their advice. In fact, the infant has developed such a deep level of disdain for the iconic 70s tune that he bursts into tears whenever dad belts it out. An video uploaded to YouTube shows Ryan spending some quality time with his dad, who is trying to make his young son keep eating by singing some silly songs.
In a potentially ground-breaking ruling, a Bangkok court has granted paternity rights of 13 surrogate babies to Mitsutoki Shigeta, a 28-year-old Japanese man who, in 2014, was discovered to have fathered at least 16 babies in Thailand via surrogates. The decision allows Mr. Shigeta, who was not present at the trial, to pursue custody of the children as he was awarded “sole parent” rights when the Thai surrogates forfeited their parenting rights.
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".
