For “Night of the Living Dead” creator George Romero, the movies gruesome effects were incidental to his broader theme: how mutual contempt and tribal self-interest so often prevent people from banding together in the face of a mortal threat. The visionary horror film director George Romero, who died Sunday at the age of 77, got the last laugh on critics who sought to bury his black-and-white classic “Night of the Living Dead” when it first stoked America’s nightmares in 1968.
The visionary horror film director George Romero, who died on Sunday at the age of 77, got the last laugh on critics who sought to bury his black-and-white classic “Night of the Living Dead” when it first stoked America’s nightmares in 1968. Filmed partly by amateurs on a budget that would not suffice as lunch money in today’s Hollywood, the movie founded a genre, introducing the zombies who are now synonymous with the apocalypse and ubiquitous in video games, novels, movies and television shows.
Mr. Marston was fixated on bondage. As the Lepore book points out, every comic book in which Wonder Woman appeared included scenes with her “chained, bound, gagged, lassoed, tied, fettered and manacled.” As a Wonder Woman editor noted, Mr. Marston’s conception of strong femininity encompassed the dissonant notion that powerful women should revel in male domination. Introduced in 1941, Wonder Woman became hugely popular very quickly.
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".
