The first thing I did upon receiving the Wonder Woman Blu-ray this week was to navigate to the bonus scene, “Etta’s Mission,” featuring Etta Candy and Diana’s surviving support group from the movie. This is one big problem with it. There must be more. There must be a series for Etta and the men. And, note, a certain important object critical to the DC Universe is mentioned in this short. So, aside from the short, what else is worth watching on the Blu-ray? (Well, other than the movie itself.)
It might be a sign of the times we live in, but based on the premise alone, I expected Maggie Shen King’s An Excess Male to be another book for the “chilling, prescient dystopia” pile—a grim saga of a future China undone by the disastrous effects of the one-child policy that left the nation’s gender balance hopelessly skewed. But as I read, I began to view it not as chilling at all, but heartwarming, romantic, and even sweet. Why? Because it’s about creating and fighting for a family.
I love my geekwear, from my collection of geeky t-shirts (mostly superhero) to my sneakers to my handbags of holding and various geek-themed backpacks. But I especially love geekwear that can be used both for cosplay and everyday wear aka everyday cosplay. A classic example of that is the many superhero hoodies I have in my closet. One is a Wonder Woman hoodie that kids love whenever I wear it. “Daddy, that’s a superhero!” I once heard a toddler exclaim in a grocery store as he passed me.
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".
