First impressions mean everything, which is especially bad news if you are incredibly socially awkward (hello) or forgot to notice a spot on your outfit until just before the job interviewer calls you in. This is also the case with video games, and it begins with the cover art decking their cases. We’ve seen some amazing graphics on the outside packaging of games. We’ve also seen some visual crimes that have nothing to do with the contents of the boxes they decorate.
We have a lot of love for Smallville, the Superman prequel series that ran for 10 seasons starting in 2001. And we appreciate its optimism and sense of hope even more now that the DC Extended Universe has brought us a version of the Man of Steel who is, somehow, even mopier and more violent than Batman. But our relationship with the TV show is a complicated one. We love, for example, that it contains arguably the best versions of both Lex Luthor and Lois Lane that have ever appeared on a screen.
Marvel’s Inhumans TV series is here, and it’s set to tell the story of the royal family of the Terrigen-enhanced folks that we first saw in live-action on Agents of SHIELD. But even the characters on that show apparently haven’t been privy to what’s been happening up on the moon this whole time. Inhumans features a variety of superpowered characters and their giant, teleporting dog, Lockjaw. And he is the only one we care about currently, because look at that face.
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".
