Racists and Marvel Comic purists raised hell in 2010 when it was announced that Idris Elba, who is black, would debut as Heimdall the Norse God, in the first installment of the Thor film franchise. Seven years later, Thor: Ragnarok appears to feature more people of color in its cast than either of the previous movies anchored by the mighty god of thunder. And Ragnarok is breaking box office records while surpassing the previous two Thor films in opening weekend ticket sales and critical acclaim.
NEW YORK CITY — It was supposed to be a moment of catharsis for an anticipated 2,800 “liberal snowflakes” at Washington Square Park in Manhattan on the one year anniversary of the president’s shocking 2016 White House win. Instead the “scream helplessly at the sky” gathering was ironically hijacked by a handful of MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters who came to revel in the misery of those distressed over Trump’s presidency.
Police reform advocates haven’t lost confidence in New York’s new system for prosecuting officers who kill unarmed civilians. The state attorney general’s office is now 0-1 after failing to convince a Brooklyn, New York, jury to convict Officer Wayne Isaacs in the 2016 fatal shooting of Delrawn Small.
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".
