As much as the original Twin Peaks was genuinely scary, its evil forces always manifested into human shapes — most notoriously an evil entity from another dimension known as Bob who inhabited human forms to commit violence. Thus a show that experimented in the supernatural kept a human dimension to its storytelling, never veering so far into fantasy that we stopped fearing the real.
On a particularly vicious episode of Last Week Tonight Sunday, John Oliver decided it was time to give viewers a history lesson. The news has gotten so insane, according to Oliver, that he felt he had a responsibility to do a recap of the last week in what he called, “stupid Watergate.”“A scandal with all the potential of Watergate, but where everyone involved is stupid and bad at everything,” he said. If you were looking for the perfect primer on last week’s political news, this was it.
A young humpback whale that got itself stuck in a California harbor found its way out overnight, according to the Ventura Harbor Patrol. Harbor patrol spotted the whale around 4 p.m. Saturday swimming in and around the docks of the Ventura Isle Marina and Ventura West Marina. Spanning around 35 feet in length, the whale quickly drew massive crowds to the harborfront, as onlookers sought to catch a rare, close-up view of the wild animal.
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".
