Everybody deserves a period of mourning — which is why, in a startling twist, “Major Crimes” creator James Duff killed off the series’ lead character, LAPD Commander Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell), four episodes prior to Tuesday night’s series finale. “No one wanted the show to end … The people who wrote it, the people who acted in it, the crew, studio [Warner Bros.], everyone — we are all grieving the end of ‘Major Crimes,’” says Duff.
“Black-ish” star Yara Shahidi isn’t even in college yet, but her spinoff sitcom, “Grown-ish” — featuring her university-bound character, Zoey Johnson — is giving her a preview of what to expect. “Part of me feels like, ‘Am I coming in a little more prepared because I’ve got fake college experience?,’” Shahidi says (she is currently taking a gap year before heading to Harvard in the fall of 2018).
The last time Sandra Bernhard partied on New Year’s Eve was more than a decade ago, in Palm Springs, Calif., and the experience was “just dreadful,” she says. “New Year’s Eve is not a fun night, unless you’re doing what I do and gather people together,” says the 62-year-old, who started a party of her own: the annual music, comedy and “absurdity of life” storytelling shows she performs at Joe’s Pub (Saturday night at 7:30 and 9:30, Sunday at 9 and 11, JoesPub.org).
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".
