Albert Maysles, who helped invent direct cinema with landmark documentaries such as Grey Gardens (1975) and Gimme Shelter (1970), made his final film, In Transit, at age 87, in the winter of 2013 and early 2014. It takes place aboard a cross-country Amtrak, on a route known as the Empire Builder, which extends from Chicago in the east to Portland and Seattle in the west.
Nearly 20 years ago, in 1998, there were 2,397 security cameras in Manhattan, according to data gathered over five months by the New York Civil Liberties Union and the NYC Surveillance Camera Project. The goal of the project was to create a map of every public and private camera that captures public space, and then use the information to spark a discussion about whether such surveillance was a good idea, and if so, then to what extent and under what conditions.
In its June 2017 issue, The Atlantic published a long essay about Richard Spencer by Graeme Wood. Wood, now a national correspondent for the magazine, went to school with Spencer at St. Mark’s School of Texas, an all-male prep school in Dallas, in the 1990s. “Richard Spencer is a troll and an icon for white supremacists,” the article subtitle reads.
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".
