Former Silicon Valley actor T.J. Miller defended his comments about women in comedy from a recent interview with New York magazine. The controversial remarks came when Miller gave his take on several well-known comedians, including Louis C.K. ("He doesn't say anything surprising anymore") and Aziz Ansari ("He's very good at what he does … like Dane Cook").
John Mayer seems to have found more than just a new life calling. The artist who once told Rolling Stone he was looking for "the Joshua Tree of vaginas" seems to have found a new life perspective â€“ not to mention sympathy for the no-longer-touring Justin Bieber. Mayer took to Twitter Sunday night with an intriguing proposition: ask him anything, and he would answer. It's Sunday evening. Let me be your life coach.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) – a neurodegenerative brain disease – was found in nearly all of the donated brains of National Football League (NFL) players examined in a new study by the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study suggests that the correlation between football and the disease is distressingly strong: of the 111 NFL football players, 110 showed the presence of CTE. CTE is frequently found in individuals who have suffered repeated head trauma.
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".
