13 February sees the UK release of Black Panther – a groundbreaking film that has left people around the world in tears… of joy. Marvel’s “most anticipated film to date”, The Guardian says, is “a film of considerable cultural significance for black communities around the world”. It has also been breaking records while subversively upending African stereotypes and shattering previous cliches. And with it representing “a perfectly timed political commentary and a celebration of blackness”.
Easing tensions between North and South Korea have got US warmongers up in arms. And their collective tantrum is visible for all to see. When athletes from North and South Korea came out together during the opening ceremonies of 2018’s Olympic Winter Games, there were reportedly “huge cheers”. Even most of the people in US Vice President Mike Pence’s box stood up. But he didn’t. And his heart was clearly unwarmed by the show of Korean unity:But it wasn’t just Pence who was unimpressed.
With every year of Tory rule that passes, Britain sleepwalks further and further into George Orwell’s 1984. And we need to wake up – before it’s too late. Theresa May’s government has not only helped to make Britain one of Earth’s most advanced surveillance states. It has also been cosying up to authoritarian allies abroad, both diplomatically and ideologically.
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".
