We’re just a few days away from watching Chance the Rapper host his first “Saturday Night Live” episode and the excitement is building, if the latest promo from NBC’s “SNL” is any indication. The official SNL Twitter account tweeted Wednesday, “What's the best way for @chancetherapper to get ready for Saturday? #SNL” with the Chicagoan getting his dance on with cast members.
Author Ruth Goring considers herself a “third-culture kid” — a child who spent most of her formative years living abroad. A native of Kansas City, Kan., Goring considered Colombia her home for most of her upbringing, thanks to being a part of a missionary family. “My family took us to Colombia when I was 6 years old,” Goring said in a phone interview.
Poet. Teacher. Mentor. All are words synonymous with Gwendolyn Brooks. Born in Topeka, Kansas, in 1917, Brooks made her name as a poet in Chicago. A Bronzeville resident, she grew up writing — writing about what she saw and heard in the street. In 1950, she was catapulted to national prominence when her second book of poetry, "Annie Allen," won a Pulitzer Prize. At the time, her community was a dense hotbed for African-American art and music.
So when will it all end?
If we’re lucky, not until we’ve reckoned with sexual harassment as the dark force that it is and the long damage it has done, and that’s going to be a while. https://t.co/9YJAnq07Vb
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".
