When youâ€™re discussing Justice League, the most important term to know wonâ€™t be in any DCEU explainers. That word is â€œphiltrum,â€? a term I found when I exited the theater Googling, â€œskin between nose and top lip.â€? According to my research, the philtrum is that exact vertical groove (Rihanna has a great one). My middle-school English teacher told me to never open any formal piece of writing with a definition, but Iâ€™m grown now and no longer beholden to her red pen, and â€œphiltrumâ€?
Sony has won the bidding war for Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s next movie, a drama set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and â€˜80s, during the time of the Manson murders. After Harvey Weinsteinâ€™s sexual-assault scandal erupted, Tarantino pulled the feature â€” referred to as #9, since itâ€™s the directorâ€™s ninth movie â€” from the Weinstein Company, despite working with the Weinsteins throughout his career. Sony beat out the likes of Paramount and Warner Bros., according to Deadline.
After Senator Al Franken was accused of kissing and groping TV and radio host Leeann Tweeden without her consent, he released a half-baked apology. Then he released a full apology, which wasnâ€™t much better: â€œWhile I donâ€™t remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe womenâ€™s experiences,â€? his statement read. â€œI am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate.â€?
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".
