Look, the negative reaction to a scene in the new trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” needs to stop. To be clear, I’m not talking about: • Kylo Ren appearing to treat his parents equally by gunning down his mom, General Leia Organa.• Luke Skywalker appearing to shirk his Yoda-like duties like a chicken. • Rey looking like she’s asking Kylo for after-school force tutoring.• A disturbing lack of good BB-8 scenes.
It’s hard to think of comedian Colin Quinn without thinking of New York City. From his beginnings in the ’80s starring in “Going Back to Brooklyn” (a parody video of LL Cool J’s “Going Back to Cali”) to his run on “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and his latest stand-up specials, Quinn’s deep New York City English accent has perfectly accompanied his Big Apple acerbic wit. Quinn knows NYC and is quick to point out its pros and cons — and how it’s not all like Manhattan.
As the role of technology and smart devices continues to grow and plays a bigger part of people’s everyday lives, so does the importance of teaching children and teenagers about online safety and being a good digital citizen.To help give parents the proper tools and resources to ensure their Hornet has a safe and good online presence, Huntsville ISD will be hosting the first ConnectED Media Moms & Digital Dads Conference on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Mance Park Middle School.“What we’ve...
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".
