A missed flight left YouTuber Mahshid Mazooji stranded in an airport overnight, so she saw two choices: fume in anger, or dance. Thankfully for the Internet, she chose the latter. Mazooji made an impromptu video for Lionel Richie’s 1983 single “All Night Long (All Night)" that diffuses the doldrums of airport purgatory with Richie’s Caribbean-infused classic. Mazooji pops and sways alongside airport employees in mostly empty terminals. One Starbucks barista breaks it down behind the counter.
NFL players kneeling during the national anthem on Sunday set off a storm that seemed to sweep up all of America with it, sparking discussions in homes across America — including the White House. With all those conversations came misconceptions about the players protests, what they mean and what might come from it. Here are five misconceptions about the demonstrations. “The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race,” President Trump tweeted on Monday.
White House adviser Jared Kushner set up a private email account last December that he used to correspond with other officials in the Trump administration. That's according to Politico, which reported Sunday that President Trump's son-in-law used the private account to swap messsages with White House figures like former strategist Steve Bannon and former chief of staff Reince Priebus as well as current economics adviser Gary Cohn and spokesman Josh Raffel.
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".
