Nostalgia is one hell of a drug, and nothing produces a more powerful sense of nostalgia than anniversary tours for the albums that changed your life. Those of us who spent the early days of the new millennium as teenagers have been treated to countless tours of this variety in recent years, and as far as we can tell that trend will not be ending anytime soon. In fact, 2018 just might produce some of the best, or at least most important, anniversary celebrations to date.
It is a sad day in the world of entertainment. Jake LaMotta, the world famous boxer who inspired the film Raging Bull, has died at the age of 95. An icon of sports, not just boxing, LaMotta was a world-renowned fighter and (later in life a) stand-up comedian. He died in a nursing home due to complications from pneumonia, his wife Denise confirmed early Wednesday morning. According to TMZ, Jake’s condition deteriorated in the last few weeks. He was put on a feeding tube, which he kept pulling out.
This post is not an endorsement of violence against others. It is, however, a reminder that there is no room for nazis in a world that values equality. Can you believe that in 2017 we are having serious conversations about nazis? Even more baffling is that so many seem okay with embracing nazi culture and the ideas it promotes. We do not stand for those things here at Substream, nor do the men of Stray From The Path.
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".
