Sunday’s episode of RHOA started out quite tediously with Cynthia in full chaperone mode, hustling everyone around Barcelona, and perhaps my least favorite Housewives trope: the Real World-style picking of rooms during a group trip. But boy did this sucker ever rev up in the last act, hunny. To quote Porsha (and, yes, please do imagine me wearing sunglasses at midnight): “Muy bien nachos!”As you may have noticed by Porsha’s masterful linguistics, the RHOA ladies have arrived in Barcelona, Spain.
Wednesday’s episode of Waco proved that creators Drew and Erick Dowdle are up to the challenge of serialized television. After last week’s initial shoot-out was depicted so dramatically, now comes the 51 days of the siege—the point when everyone dug their heels so deep into the Texas prairie dirt that there was no going back.
This episode is kind of like when I sit down to write the next Great American Novel (set in the Bachelor universe) — it’s convinced that it’s busy, and yet absolutely nothing happens. This episode is basically scrolling through Twitter and thinking of things to text its friends for an hour. Somehow, nearly the entire episode is spent either in sepia tone (which seems to represent a rosé-fueled brownout) flashbacks, or in entire scenes where Dorit just recaps the exact plot of last week’s episode.
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".
