If you’re a fan of scotch, bourbon, or any other drink from the wonderful world of grain-based dark liquors, you’ve probably noticed there’s some inconsistency when it comes to the spelling of the word that encompasses the entire family of drinks: whiskey… or should I say “whisky?”I didn’t actually know the answer to that question. Business Insider spoke to Ewan Gunn, a Whisky Master and Global Brand Ambassador at Diageo.
This hurricane season has been a particularly perilous one, and while there has already been a great deal of damage and destruction, it has been met with an overwhelming outpouring of support from the general public and a number of inspiring fundraising efforts led by the likes of Tim Duncan and JJ Watt. However, those are far from the only famous people to pitch in.
A couple of months ago, we got our first look at the much-anticipated Jumanji sequel starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and an impressive supporting cast— including Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. When it was revealed the board game from the first movie was being replaced by a video game cartridge, it became clear that the new film would be a bit of a departure from the original. The only question was how much of a departure it would be.
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".
