As a journalist, Ronan Farrow blew up the biggest open secret in Hollywood when he published a meticulous account of Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator. His piece in The New Yorker last October in part sparked the #MeToo movement that eventually claimed Kevin Spacey as on of its victims, and he just signed a three-year deal with HBO for a series of investigative documentaries. But Farrow has his own open secret: He’s apparently in a romantic relationship with another man, podcaster Jon Lovett.
Peter Thiel has had a busy few months. At his fiftieth birthday celebration in Vienna, the Facebook billionaire married his boyfriend and surprised friends (some of whom arrived in Thiel’s personal jet) with a guest appearance by none other than Seal. Congrats to Mr. Thiel, who just broke the the little hearts of many a young gay conservative. His company put a chunk of change into Bitcoin, causing the price of the crypto-currency to jump.
In May 2010, VGM Group, Inc.'s Mark Higley and John Gallagher were tasked with a "straight-down-the-middle discussion" to give HME providers a perspective on the business. With 2018 upon us, we asked Higley and Gallagher to reflect on what they got right, what they got wrong, and look forward as part of HomeCare Magazine's January 2018 "State of the Industry" edition. In 2010, I began with the relatively new competitive bidding program (CBP) predictions.
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".
