Here are two terms that have probably never shared a sentence before: Comic Sans and cancer. The font your elementary school teachers used to "spice up" curricula — you know, the one everyone loves to hate — is now helping to raise funds to fight cancer. Comic Sans for Cancer is a campaign orchestrated by a trio of British designers who wanted to find a productive use for the most universally hated font. It's an open invitation to the public to submit posters that somehow integrate the font.
In case any of us needed further proof that Fox News is the foremost sexist news network of the moment, this supercut — stitched together by the folks over at Media Matters — is it. While most supercuts are engineered to make you feel, well, super!, this one leaves much to be desired in that department. Think: 70 (7-0) displays of sexism in under 6 minutes.Watch the clip courtesy of Media Matters below:VIDEO
Apple unveiled its gold watch to the public Monday afternoon and — just as the world wide web had feared — the price tag wasn’t pretty. Ten-thousand (10,000!) dollars for the 18-karat or yellow gold watch, going as high as $17,000. While some of its features “awwed,” including its ability to monitor security cameras, open a garage door and track down an Uber, there was no convincing anyone that shelling out $10,000 (come April 10, when pre-orders are made available) was a logical course of action.
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".
