I’m looking for a lady who’s loyal to the end, a real bite-or-die — I mean, ride-or-die bae. Oh, and I love a lady with a nice neck. Hope you don’t mind if I leave a mark! You must have a valid passport, because I love to fly off to exotic locations at the bat of an eye. So what do you say: Do you want a stake in my heart? Why you should swipe right: You love to travel, too. Why you should swipe left: I’m available only at night. I’m just not a morning person.
Where’s Marla going?” Sherman Hemsley asks as Marla Gibbs ambles to a corner of the threadbare San Fernando Valley, Calif., studio where most of The Jeffersons‘ cast has reunited for a stage version of its smash 1975-85 sitcom. ”She went to put on makeup,” says Roxie Roker, who is reprising her role as the Jeffersons’ neighbor Helen Willis. ”Do we have a trowel?” Hemsley snorts. Make no mistake: George Jefferson is back, and snarly as ever.
The super-long wait is almost over: “Incredibles 2,” the sequel to Pixar’s 2004 animated smash, “The Incredibles,” will finally land in theaters soon, and a new trailer has just been released. The plot picks up as if no time has passed. An ubervillain who first appeared at the original’s end, the Underminer (voiced by Pixar staple John Ratzenberger), is wreaking havoc on the planet, and “supers” remain outlaws.
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".
