They are the myths that have enthralled and educated generations throughout the ages. But now one of Britain’s leading classics scholars has found himself under attack for including ‘politically incorrect’ scenes of rape and nudity in a Latin textbook – in the latest instance of ‘snowflake’ students being shielded from offence.
She is hot favorite to scoop the top award at tonight’s ‘TV Oscars’ for her brilliant portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in The Crown. And now Claire Foy is set to earn her biggest pay day yet – a reported £3 million – to star as Lisbeth Salander in the sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Foy, 33, beat dozens of other hopefuls to win the coveted role in the £85 million production of The Girl In The Spider’s Web, which is due to start filming in Berlin in January.
In the pitch black, winds howling, the catamaran was tossed around like a toy by the 15ft roiling waves in the middle of the shark-infested Pacific in one of the most isolated spots on the planet. Suddenly, without warning, the vessel lurched to one side, followed by the ‘sickening, ear-splitting sound’ of ‘crunching, groaning and grinding’ as the 50ft Avanti crashed headfirst into a submerged coral reef, gaping holes ripping through her fibreglass hull, seawater surging into the cabins.
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".
