Despite a devoted effort to address gender inequality in Hollywood, a new study released by the Women's Media Center reports that the overall percentage of female Oscar nominees in non-acting categories has only increased slightly in the past year. With a boost of only three percent, from 20 percent to 23 percent, representation of women progressed in some categories but fell back in others. Women represent 27 percent of the Best Picture nominees—a decrease from the previous year’s 30 percent.
Playwright Robert Anderson famously said, "You go into show business to make a killing, not a living." But Cynthia von Buhler can say, quite literally, that she has done one by staging the other. The artist, author, playwright and theater producer first ventured into immersive theater when writing a book exploring the mysterious death of her grandfather.
A dream is a wish your heart makes—if your dream is to go to the Magic Kingdom, and you can afford an almost 10% price increase. Admission prices for Walt Disney theme parks in the United States have increased for 2018, with the cost of some single-day tickets going up by almost 9%. The price hike will vary with each park, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, will see the highest increase, with peak-period one-day tickets costing $135. They were previously sold for $124.
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".
