The Subject of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story Might Be the First Person and Scientist to Simulate an Orgasm OnscreenThis, the film asserts, was a loss to the US war effort as well as a tragedy for Lamarr. An untrained but brilliant inventor, she spent breaks between shoots in her trailer experimenting, and lost sleep in favor of tinkering in an upstairs lab. She collaborated on a frequency-hopping torpedo signaling system with the American composer George Antheil.
This Asshole Wants to Take The Stranger Out of Your News FeedIf you are reading these words right now, there's a pretty good chance you got here from Facebook. Nearly half of The Stranger's online traffic comes from the social media site, and that's probably less than other media outlets; unlike much of what you read online, The Stranger isn't a solely digital media company, and we have a biweekly print publication (on news stands now!)
With a 69-28 vote, the Washington State House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday to update Washington State's gender pay equity laws and expand protections against pay secrecy. “As we lift the shroud of silence on sexual harassment so must we make sure we no longer have secrecy around our wages," said Representative Tana Senn, a Democrat from Mercer Island and sponsor of the bill.
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".
