Twenty-five years later, it's hard to remember what all the shouting was about. Today, Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" looks like a standard Hollywood prestige biopic, centered around an Oscar-worthy performance by Denzel Washington. But during the time leading up to the movie's release a quarter-century ago this week (on November 18, 1992), the behind-the-scenes turmoil of the "Malcolm X' production seemed nearly as dramatic and racially controversial as the Nation of Islam activist's real life had been.
It's been five years since Bella and Edward had a kid. It was five years ago this week (on November 16, 2012) that saw the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," featuring the long-awaited (and really messed up) birth of Edward and Bella's baby. As obsessively as fans pored over every detail of the supernatural romance, there's still much you may not know about the five-film series.
Onetime Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss sobbed on the witness stand as she testified Tuesday that her former fiance, ”Saving Private Ryan” actor Tom Sizemore, beat her numerous times, according to wire service reports.

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".
