In the next Captain America movie, Civil War, friends turn into foes, and Captain America will face off against the lovable billionaire-genius-playboy-conversationalist Iron Man. If the movie follows the comic arc on which it is based, we know who wins that fight — but how would your favorite MCU character fare in a fight with America’s captain? Chris Pratt, the guy that helped turn the obscure space hero Star-Lord into the most unique property in the MCU, has an idea.
Even though Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and only a hair below 36 million miles away, it can still harbor water and even ice. It seems absurd considering Mercury can reach over 800 degrees Fahrenheit, but scientists have known that water ice exists for over 20 years. Now, NASA was able to capture the very first images of that water ice tucked away on the Solar System’s hottest planet. Over 20 years ago, radar imaging based on Earth detected water ice on Mercury’s north and south poles.
Scribblenauts is a game where you can invoke almost anything found in a dictionary into existence so long as it isn’t vulgar, and is tangible. In each iteration of the series, the development team, 5th Cell, likes to add fun pop culture items to the in-game summoning system. So, every now and then you’ll discover that you can invoke a “lolwut” or popular internet memes. However, it turns out 5th Cell didn’t get permission from the creators of certain memes, and those creators feel slighted.
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".
