Before its revival this spring,fans spent more than a pair of decades wondering whether anagogic detective hero Agent Cooper (played by Kyle MacLachlan) had been taken over by an evil doppelgänger. In an attempt to boost ratings back in the ’90s, ABC pressured the show’s creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, to resolve the mystery of Laura Palmer’s murder midway through the second season. The reveal left the paranormal whodunit series scattered and directionless.
Around the time Twin Peaks first aired, identical twins Gary and Neil Peacock shared a dream. They were about 11 years old when Gary told his brother about his visions from the night before. It was then that Neil began describing the dream back to him. “My brother would be like ‘Wait, then did this happen?’” says Gary. “We even remembered what the other was doing.”The brothers had shared other dreams as well, but this one of exploring a creepy building was the most vivid.
Natalie Rosen was 19 years old, going through a breakup and had a one-way ticket to Iceland when she got a call from the IWK Health Centre telling her she was pregnant. “I immediately started freaking out,” says Rosen. “I asked ‘Are you sure it’s me?’ and she repeated my name and I thought ‘Oh no!’”Rosen had undergone a physical exam a couple days before to prepare for her trip, but until that moment hadn’t suspected a pregnancy.
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".
