We knew that Golden Globes night would be different this year. In fact, if you were watching the E! channel Sunday, you saw red-carpet coverage of actresses wearing only black to signify their solidarity with the #MeToo movement and the #TimesUp initiative against sexual harassment in Hollywood. Then you saw an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” in which Kim Kardashian decides she wants to do something about homelessness and tours a homeless encampment.
Green beans were often a staple of our regular Sunday suppers at my Granny's house, but the simple addition of the little potatoes with the skin peeled off in the middle was saved for holidays and special occasions. The green beans and potatoes were cooked in flavored chicken stock, and the potatoes would fall apart just enough to coat the beans with starchy goodness (vegetable stock works great, too, if you want to make the dish vegetarian.
It’s astonishing how quickly a horrendous decision by the Department of the Interior to allow the import of elephant trophies into the U.S. got, rightly, stopped in its tracks. But the truly surprising part is that President Trump himself stopped it. Friday evening, he tweeted that he was putting the decision on hold until he could review all the conservation facts.
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".
