In the age of "fake news," Al Gore still believes in facts. The former vice president is back on the big screen Friday with the hopes that his latest film, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power," will inspire others to think about just that — the facts. Eleven years after his Oscar-winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth," shed light on the impact of fossil fuels on the environment, many of the scientific predictions presented in that movie have come true.
If last year it seemed that major movie studios weren’t all that focused on Comic-Con, this year was quite the turnaround. There were lots of big movie stars and splashy film presentations at the annual gathering in San Diego this weekend. But some studios did a better job of wowing fans than others.
UPDATE: Jessica Williams' film debut, "The Incredible Jessica James," drops on Netflix on July 28. Jessica Williams is only 26 and she's living the dream. Hers and her ancestors. She first came on the scene as a correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” Now she's co-host of “2 Dope Queens,” a hugely popular podcast and live show with Phoebe Robinson. This summer, she makes her debut as the lead of a feature film in the Netflix movie, “The Incredible Jessica James."
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".
