Upon leaving the theater, it’s hard to immediately comprehend what the major takeaways of the film “Mother!” are. In Hollywood, audiences have grown used to a never-ending cycle of sequels and threequels of films about fast cars, robots and loveable animated characters. If those are your genres of choice, “Mother!” will either be a welcome departure from predictability — or a disgusting, confusing 121 minutes of your life.
The attorney of a local political donor wants West Hollywood Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath investigated by a grand jury to determine whether she violated conduct rules when she spoke out about the overdose death of a 26-year-old man. Gemmel Moore died July 27 of a methamphetamine overdose at the home of Ed Buck, a well-known donor in local and LGBT political circles, in the 1200 block of North Laurel Avenue.
The conversation and debate around transgender rights often largely focuses on a person’s access to gender-affirming surgery. Often left out of the conversation are the barriers that people who are transgender and gender nonconforming face in changing their legal names and gender markers. To help improve access to legal services for people who are transgender, a coalition of organizations has started hosting free legal clinics in Los Angeles.
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".
