It’s no secret by now that the Alt-Right movement (totally not Nazis) held a gathering last weekend in Charlottesville, VA protesting the deconstruction of the Robert E. Lee statue. To put it lightly, it was incredibly violent and ended with the death of three people. Now why is a website like Nerd Reactor reporting on such an event? Alisa Norris, a well-known cosplayer who goes by the name of Alisa Kiss, was present at the protest.
Keep in mind this is a rumor, but we’re going to get excited about it anyway because the real world disappoints us. According to two independent sources reporting to Kotaku, Capcom is working on an Okami HD port for the current-gen consoles this December. This can be indicated by two European retailers listing Okami HD to their internal upcoming physical release calendars. Both listings include a launch date of December 12, 2017.
Let’s face it, there is no other video game series more polarizing than Sonic the Hedgehog. Being one of the most recognizable game characters in history next to Mario, the Blue Blur has had a ton of hits and misses, garnering him a spot as one of the most used memes on the internet (for better or for worse). I myself was a huge Sonic fan back in my childhood, enjoying the classics on the Genesis, the Adventure titles, and I mustered up every comic book and TV show episodes I could find.
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".
