I really wanted Justice League to succeed. I wanted it to be a film that, despite the production hell and predictions of failure, made it out alive, covered in glory. Well, it is covered in something. Not every ugly duckling becomes a swan. Some just end up roasted. Zack Snyder started this in a similarly grim style to last year's joyless Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
Joss Whedon may just have pulled off the save of the century: Justice League is not terrible. That's not to say it's great. I'd struggle to call it anything more than okay. But it is fun in parts, and considering it was on course to being the biggest turkey of the year (and this year has seen The Mummy), that's not a bad result. This is a movie that Zack Snyder started in his customary grimly-toned style.
Exploring the deep ocean and seeing rare and fantastic sights may seem like a dream job, yet it can come with a bittersweet tinge. Orla Doherty is one of the producers of the BBC series Blue Planet II and she oversaw just some of the 6,000 hours spent underwater it took to create the seven-part nature documentary series. As documentaries go, Blue Planet II has the potential to be one of the most important created, documented all manner of life in an ever increasingly fragile ocean.
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".
