A pivotal scene in “mother!” is so disturbing that it’s hard to call this new film anything but a straight-out horror movie. Yet the moment also is meant to serve as an allegory of climate change, species extinction and other environmental woes. “We’re all on this planet together with a tremendous amount of bounty, but it’s definitely finite and we’re seeing the results of our insatiable appetite,” director Darren Aronofsky said in a...
Salman Rushdie was working on a politically charged novel while the 2016 presidential campaign was in full swing. The author wanted to include the election’s outcome in his book, so he imagined and wrote an ending where Donald Trump won. “The Golden House,” his 18th book, comes out Tuesday. It contains links to real events in ways Mr. Rushdie’s...
When Maude Julien was a girl, she writes, her father locked her in a rat-infested cellar and forced her to wear a sweater with bells on it so he would know if she moved. He made her grip an electric fence for 10 minutes at a time in a test of her willpower. He insisted that she watch the slaughter of farm animals, bathe in his dirty bathwater, sleep in a freezing bedroom and hold a clear glass bowl for him to urinate in every morning....
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".
