Tina Fey, who went to university in Charlottesville, explains how to fight the alt-right by eating cake in a hilarious Weekend Update segment. You know the country is deeply divided when we can’t even agree that Nazis are evil. But what can one person do when even the president insists there are “many sides” to the white power rally that turned deadly last weekend at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville?
As the city's first-ever convention dedicated to video games, Play NYC will showcase the best new titles by local indie developers. Play NYC is taking over all three floors and the roof of Terminal 5. With all the nerds in New York City — our Comic Con has been bigger than San Diego’s for years now — it’s hard to believe we haven’t had a dedicated video game convention.
Summer is ending faster than we'd like, and with it goes the season of rum. Before we're out of tropical cocktail season, here are five excellent places to drinkLong Island City’s Ravel Hotel opened its new rooftop Profundo Pool Club just in time for the warmest month of summer, with a Bali-inspired deck and a 20-foot pool. While there’s a perfectly summer-worthy blueberry-rum drink on the menu, it’s their resurrection of a tiki classic that caught our eye.
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".
