Under the cloak of a Mississippi night, Florence Jackson makes an admission to her eldest son. “I dreamt about you, too,” she says during a serene midpoint in Mudbound. Ronsel (Jason Mitchell) has safely returned from the Second World War, serving in George S. Patton’s 761st “Black Panthers” tank battalion. While he was gone, Florence—played by Mary J. Blige, with the singer delivering a performance of harsh beauty—was so consumed by her concern that it began to haunt her sleep.
The most telling piece of symbolism from Harvey Weinstein’s appearance at a Phoenix restaurant late last week, where he disguised himself in a blond wig and orange makeup, can be found in the inscription of the black baseball cap he wore, which reportedly read “2:24.” It was a subtle, if self-absorbed, reference to biblical verse Acts 2:24, which begins: “But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.” There...
If you’re like us—and if you’re reading this site, you probably are—you spent every minute this weekend that you weren’t working on your Halloween costume or playing Super Mario Odyssey binge-watching the latest installment of Stranger Things . It had more monsters, more telekinesis, and even more kids. There was even a trip to Chicago! It was … well, it was pretty good. But was it great? Not so fast—or at least not so uninamous. Some of us loved it as much as Dustin loves pollywogs.
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".
