Billboard is reporting that Chester Bennington, vocalist with Linkin Park, has been found dead at a residence in Los Angeles. The cause of death is said to be suicide by hanging. Bennington was 41, and a father of six children by two wives. He reportedly struggled with alcohol, drug addiction and depression for many years. Bennington was a close friend of Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, who committed suicide in May. Today would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday. Email: email@example.com
"An early morning to get to #Buffalo – rocking @CanalsideBflo for our best #American fans, can't wait!" That was Jeff Burrows, drummer with the Tea Party, tweeting in the early a.m. on Thursday, and rather handily encapsulating the feeling of excitement that has been building here since the announcement that the revered Canadian trio would be making its Canalside debut during the week that included both the Fourth of July and Canada Day.
Jay-Z is back, and he didn’t come to mess. "4:44" arrived on Friday through Jay's own streaming service, Tidal. And it places the rapper and entrepreneur, if not on the very top of the hip-hop heap, then close to it. "Stop walkin' 'round like y'all made 'Thriller,' " offers the man with the richest voice in rap this side of Chuck D., during "Moonlight," one of several tracks on the brilliant collection that enact verbal smack-downs on Jay's peers, old and young.
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".
