We’re still waiting for the first truly great video game adaptations to arrive in theaters. Howeer, filmmakers are set on translating works from PC and consoles to the big screen, and they show no signs of slowing down. We wish we could say that they were steadily getting better at it. But the past couple years gave us the tangled Christmas light mess that was Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and the super-pretty but otherwise mediocre Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft.
For each of its 22 seasons, the reality romance series The Bachelor has promised a fairytale romance for two people and crushing, public disappointment for two dozen others. Meanwhile, viewers get to watch a whole lot of drama play out while contestants vie for their common love interest’s attention. It’s easy to focus on the weekly drama, rivalries, and ridiculous situations. But at its most basic, The Bachelor is a competition– and competitions have rules.
Bad ratings aren’t the only reason programs leave the air. Some canceled TV shows end for unplanned and sudden reasons thanks to offscreen drama, legal troubles, or untimely deaths– and some even have combinations of these. The ’00s made us miss the ’90s for more reasons than one, not the least being that it’s a group of years that are nearly impossible to nickname elegantly. Do we call them the “aughts”? The “zeros”? Help us out here, decade.
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".
