George Clooney’s best shot was never in a movie. Turns out it was likely poured out of a bottle of tequilaFor four years the Hollywood actor has been a part owner in Casamigos, the tequila company he helped found along with Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman. Today (June 21) their company was purchased by Diageo, the multinational alcoholic beverages company headquartered in the UK, for as much as $1 billion, according to a statement by Diageo.
Much of an American fast food chain’s success boils down to one thing: seconds. The average drive-through order at McDonald’s takes 208.2 seconds, or about three and a half minutes, to complete. That’s a bit slower than rivals Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts, KFC, and even Wendy’s, which gets each customer through in 169.1 seconds (2.8 minutes) on average, according to data by QSR Magazine.
It only took five years for vegan mayonnaise to disrupt the condiments aisle, where it can now be found alongside stalwart brands such as Kraft and Hellmann’s. And even as the company behind that disruption looks to continue a shakeup, it’s also launching into new territory, one that’s far more behind the scenes. Hampton Creek is the Silicon Valley-based food company that in five years rattled the grocery-shelf status quo—an example of how quickly it can happen.
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".
