Makayla Hainline has been waiting for a movie like “Wonder.” It’s the tale of Auggie Pullman, a 10-year-old boy who loves “Star Wars,” Halloween and science. He also has Treacher Collins syndrome, a rare genetic condition affecting the way the face develops. “Me and this Auggie kid are like brothers and sisters,” Makayla tells me, her blue eyes so bold not even her glasses can hide their brilliance. “We have a lot in common. He had a feeding tube like me. He had 27 surgeries.
Jordan Peele is a comedian. But “Get Out” is no comedy. So when the news broke this week that one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films would be submitted to the Golden Globes as a comedy, folk weren’t having it. Not fans, not film co-star Lil Rel Howery — and writer/director Jordan Peele himself cynically tweeted, “‘Get Out’ is a documentary.” OK, this horror film isn’t a documentary either. But it is rooted in racism — the real monster.
The lone gunman: He was off. He was antisocial. No one thought he was capable of killing. This is what we say about the domestic terrorists desperate to destroy humanity. We blame the carnage on evil and mental illness, but we don’t want to get serious about gun control and violence. In a matter of weeks we’ve seen two of the deadliest mass shootings in modern American history. On Sunday, Devin Kelley killed at least 26 people in a south Texas church. His victims were as young as 18 months old.
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".
