December is a good month to be a Netflix subscriber, especially if you're prone to fits of nostalgia. Jim Carrey fans will be happy to see the comedian's two Ace Ventura films come to Netflix on December 1st. Meanwhile, both Judd Apatow and Dave Chappelle have new Netflix Original stand-up comedy shows arriving later in the month. Chappelle was out of the limelight for such a long time, it's a pleasant surprise to see yet another show this soon.
The Walking Dead is five episodes into what may be the worst season yet of the show, though Season 7 is right up there. That hasn't stopped fans and many critics from singing its praises, but ratings continue to slide and I continue to watch as one of the most promising shows on television spirals ever further into a tangled, ungainly morass of its own making. I used to really love The Walking Dead, warts and all.
A whole bunch of content is leaving Netflix in December including, oddly enough, some Christmas content (the very first title in the list below is 1991's All I Want For Christmas.) If you're in the middle of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia you'll definitely want to binge faster. Every season of that show is leaving Netflix next month.
@ancapistani@fewrfreyut@mombot@MitsuShow Think of him as a weatherman. They predict it will be sunny not because they enjoy the sunshine but because their data points to that. Sometimes they get it wrong, but not because they're anti-rain or whatever.
@ancapistani@fewrfreyut@mombot@MitsuShow His job is to make predictions. I don't understand why this is so hard to comprehend. He isn't *invested* in the stock. He isn't saying it will do well so that his own shares improve. He's saying it will do well based off his analysis of the company.
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".
