What is it to be in a relationship? How can such a thing be easily described? How can it be encapsulated? How is it that we form a bond with someone else; share a knowing understanding with them? It isn’t easy and offering up such attachments, or the formation of them, on the big screen isn’t always easy either. Today’s podcast takes a look at two new-to-Blu-ray films “The Big Sick” and “The Hero,” to perhaps gain a new perspective.
Stephen Frears tackled a portion of Queen Elizabeth II’s life with his 2006 film, “The Queen.” With his latest movie though he’s moving back in time by more than a century to look at a wholly different Queen of England and a portion of her rule. As the film’s title indicates, front and center in “Victoria & Abdul” is Queen Victoria, portrayed by Judi Dench (who previously played the figure in “Mrs.
We have already talked on this podcast about the difficulties sometimes inherent in recommending a movie to a someone else. This week we revisit the issue looking at two 2017 films — “The Mummy” and “First Kill.”To be sure, neither is a good movie, but sometimes difficult decisions need to be made. So, in that vein, if forced, which of the two would Josh recommend and moreover, how would he go about making that decision?
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".
