Last month, comedian Kathy Griffin put herself in the firing line by mocking Donald Trump. Today, actor and well-known progressive John Cusack is in their sights. It's all over a tweet encouraging the U.S. president to "get yerself buried". You can see it below. Here are just a few of the responses:"When will the hidden Hollywod Trump supporters stand up denounce this crap. If you don't support this and say nothing, then you support it!"
If all goes according to Christy Clark’s plan, British Columbia’s newly acclaimed 38th speaker of the legislature will resign his office sometime this week, when her government falls as expected. Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson will become the shortest-ever serving speaker in B.C. history. According to the legislative library, that dubious distinction presently belongs to B.C.’s 19th speaker, John Hart. He served a whole 67 days in that capacity, under the 1949 Coalition government.
Tens of thousands showed up in Kitsilano today for a street party celebrating all things Hellenic. West Broadway was blocked off from Macdonald to Blenheim for Greek Day. Souvlaki, dolmades, keftedes, spanakopita, you name it, it was all availabe on the street, along with a whole lotÂ of Greek dancing andÂ Greek flags. It marked the culmination of Greek Heritage Month. The first city-sanctioned Greek Day took place in 1974 in the heart of what was once known as Greektown.
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".
