For as glamorous as the stars look strutting down the red carpet, preparing for it seems a little exhausting. You have to get up early. A crew of hair and makeup artists swarm you. You likely spend a whole evening in shapewear and stilettos (unless, of course, you’re Millie Bobby Brown and you rock a pair of Converse). But Julia Louis-Dreyfus didn’t have to go through any of that at the 2018 SAG Awards.
It’ll take a lot of major changes to dismantle the power structure that’s held women back for centuries, but women in Hollywood might be onto one approach that could make a big impact: Talking about their salaries. The tactic has already proved effective in the case of Michelle Williams reportedly making *way* less than Mark Wahlberg for reshooting their movie All the Money in the World — after the disparity made headlines, Wahlberg donated his earnings to the Times Up fund.
We knew Tom Hardy was a real-life hero even before he stopped an actual robbery last spring. Now Super Tom is back at it, saving the world one adorable puppy at a time. A few days ago, the actor and professional dog enthusiast really outdid himself perfect-man-wise: His Instagram post about a litter of abandoned pups probably helped get them all adopted. Cue all the awwwws. A little context: Tom Hardy, like all of us, is obsessed with dogs.
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".
