The long goodbye: You could fill a crowd-pleasing rock 'n' roll museum with the number of acts who have announced they'll longer be touring after a last run of shows beginning in 2018. While an end of the road is always going to come for a veteran musician, the retirement timeline for Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John in particular feels odd given both will extend their farewells until 2020 and 2021, respectively.
The need for 'Solo: A Star Wars Story': One of the more talked about trailers during the Super Bowl's ad blitz, this production has had its share of troubles that culminated with Ron Howard taking over directing duties. You can understand Disney's desires to wring cash out of every possible angle in the "Star Wars" universe, exploring the backstory for an already well-explored character isn't the easiest or most compelling way.
"People love it," said veteran sports reporter Trenni Kusnierek, who for the second consecutive Winter Olympics will join NBC's broadcast to cover curling. She was reached by phone from her hotel in South Korea a few days before the opening ceremonies. "Because it seems like, 'Oh this is easy. I could do this,' but it's really, really difficult.

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".
