Cinema in 2017 offered a respite from a year that started out for many as a dumpster fire and didn’t hesitate to keep pouring on the gasoline. Looking at the films below, it’s hard not to notice that so many of them focus on the past, whether it is the war-torn 1940s, an idyllic 1980s Italy, or the world of serious figure skating (or the European AIDS crisis) in the 1990s. I mean, the year’s best animated movie involved a kid investigating a mystery involving his great-grandparents.
The memoir brings delight, in part, because it entwines themes of Homer's Greek classic with themes of the author's family: deception and recognition, marriage and children, the pleasures of travel and the meaning of home. Also, as you probably know, Odysseus was a bit of a word master who uses wit and trickery to get out of many situations during his 10-year effort to return home after the Trojan War. Odysseus' reliance on mind rather than might attracts the younger Mendelsohn.
That's the kind of toughness that earned respect in South Texas, where sheriffs were the unquestioned law of their county. And that was part of the problem. Ennis was the kind of sheriff who also killed Hispanics in questionable circumstances. The most noted were the Rodriguez killings. "In a shootout west of town, Vail had shot down the three Rodriguez brothers — Felix, Domingo and Antonio, all highly respected farmers," McCollom writes. "Some people said it was a shooting, not a shootout.
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".
