We knew that Ed Sheeran would be making an appearance in the new season of Game of Thrones. What we didn't know was that it would happen right in the first episode. We heard Ed before we saw him; the singer played a red-cloaked Lannister soldier singing by the side of the road, seated with some other armored fellows around a campfire. To be honest, the song was pretty good. The refrain was very lads-at-war: "Hands of gold are always cold / but a woman's hands are warm."
Are you ready for today's instalment of Please Let It Be True News? You couldn't possibly be. It's really something. But here it is anyway: Irish radio station Spin 1038 noticed that photo service Splash has labeled several photos with intriguing captions that claim Taylor Swift is inside this giant black suitcase:I. CANNOT. BELIEVE. THIS. BUT. I. ALSO. WANT. TO. BELIEVE. IT. Splash has titled the suite of photographs: "Is Taylor Swift being transported in a huge suitcase from her Tribeca apartment??"
Drake knows that Mondays are hard. That's why his latest Instagram post is a thirst trap, a logic puzzle, a comment on corporate culture, and a metaphysical inquiry all at the same time. Isn't it? What else could possibly explain this ruffian's grin and inscrutable caption? I'm sorry to say it, but our hotlines are blinging. Does this pic of Drake sucking down some Starbucks mean that he is thirsty or that we are thirsty? JUST THINK ABOUT IT.
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".
