A lifelong activist, I've been working in human rights and international development since 2009. I worked in study abroad administration for three years, and led or participated in eight different higher ed experiences abroad, ranging from two weeks to three months in length. My writing combines ...
This episode had a lot of work to accomplish, and yet somehow also very little that’s fun or flashy to mix in with it. No big reveals, almost no humour, returning to old villains but not for the first time, so it’s not even exciting. One highlight is letting a bunch of bad guys obliterate each other in battle, because who cares? They’re all throwaway nobodies.
At the end of the midseason finale, Supergirl was defeated by Reign in a spectacular and violent fashion. Reign did serious damage, both to Supergirl herself, who spends most of this episode in a coma, and to the city, which seems panicked and demoralised after Supergirl’s defeat and absence. If you were hoping to meet the whole Legion tonight, you were disappointed—the rest of the crew is still in stasis in their ship.
One of the defining themes of 2017 was our national reckoning with sexual violence like harassment and assault. Starting in January with the inauguration of our (self-admitted) Perpetrator-in-Chief, 2017 was the year the spotlight turned to the harassment of women in Hollywood, restaurants, even the automotive industry.
@Madmaddingcrowd Oh I have about a million criticisms of Gone Girl, chief among them that it takes place in an alternate reality where people believe survivors of sexual violence. That doesn't change the fact that the concept of the cool girl resonates with so many people.
I'm reading #ThePower by @NaomiAllthenews and my god, so many parallels to put current Reckoning. One day women found a strength inside themselves. Men finally feel fear, and everyone wonders why now? How long has this strength existed? Will they go too far?
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".
