Yesterday, the Washington Redskins fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, losing 27-7 in a game that they should've won handily. The Redskins are a mess right now, but the Buccaneers are worse, sitting at 2-8 in a division that is the NFL's weakest. However, Tampa Bay's obvious mediocrity did nothing to help Washington, and Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is not happy about it.
Struggling to move on from his first love, Samer DM'ed the platinum-selling singer on Twitter with a simple, innocuous question: "How did you get over your first heartbreak?" It's the type of note that a fan may not expect to hear back on. After all, someone like Rihanna is surely busy fielding hundreds of requests, questions, obligations, and what have you on a daily basis. However, the singer graciously gave Samer a minute of her time and sympathy by replying.
Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the most-celebrated leading men in the history of film. The Irish actor has claimed three Oscars for Best Actor, is widely renowned for his demanding style of method acting, and is famously selective with his work. In fact, since his first uncredited appearance in 1971's Sunday Bloody Sunday, Day-Lewis has appeared in just 20 films, and his upcoming Phantom Thread will be his last performance on the screen.

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".
