The Last 100 Days: FDR at War and at Peace David B. Woolner Basic. 349 pp. $32There is a point, not very far into David B. Woolner's excellent accounting of Franklin D. Roosevelt's last months in office, where one realizes that this history, intentional or not, is going to be a presidential death watch. "Was he too ill during these last months to properly carry the burdens of office?" the author asks in his preface. "Did Stalin dupe him at Yalta because FDR was too weak to resist?
Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi. A film shrouded in darkness and secrecy for over 2 years, with teasers revealing little to next to nothing of the plot. Director Rian Johnson of Looper fame directs here and the result, without giving too much away, is coherent, strong and tinged with humour. If JJ Abrams’ 2015 The Force Awakens was the equivalent of a Greatest Hits tour from the Star Wars universe, then Rian Johnson ploughs into the difficult second album with aplomb.
On Dec. 6, 1967, Horst Faas, the chief photographer of The Associated Press in Vietnam, was pinned down in a slim trench among the rubber trees lining the American air base at Bu Dop, just a few miles from the Cambodian border. It was less than two months before the launch of the Tet offensive and the area was teeming with Viet Cong activity. It was a situation all too familiar to Faas. Earlier that year, he had been caught in a firefight closer to Saigon, near the American base at Kai Lakh.
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".
