On the latest episode of Game of Thrones, there were quite a few frustrating moments. But one of the scenes in "Eastwatch" was surprisingly relatable, even for women who don't live in Westeros. It was a quiet exchange between Sam and Gilly, who only recently learned to read. Gilly has been keeping Sam company as he peruses dusty scroll after dusty scroll at the Citadel—and has been peeking at some historical records herself. "What does annulment mean?"
The Bachelorette finale on Monday night was truly epic, and a shocker—the live format was tense; Rachel Lindsay's reunions with past contestants, including fan favorite Peter Kraus, were emotional; and her final choice shocked a lot of fans. But the two people at the center of this storm aren't fazed.
Last night, The Bachelorette's Rachel Lindsay revealed who her fiancé was: Miami chiropractor Bryan Abasolo. Bachelor Nation was truly thrown, despite early signs he'd have a good chance, because it had pre-emptively anointed a different winner entirely: Wisconsin business owner Peter Kraus. Since the beginning of the season—when he stepped out of the limo first (a Bachelor franchise tell) and charted right off the Twitter-o-meter—he's been a crowd favorite.
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".
