Charles Manson, the charismatic cult leader who died Sunday, was a failed singer inspired to evil by misinterpreting Beatles lyrics into a twisted vision of a race war. Here's a quick look at his life in photos. Manson, who died at age 83, started amassing followers as a 30-something with a stalling music career and two prison terms under his belt. He created a family largely of young runaways and led them in sex and LSD trips, according to The Washington Post.
A group of space conspiracy theorists alleged this week that authorities may be covering up the truth about an object recently caught on film near Earth. Secureteam, which calls itself "the fastest-growing research outlet and source for data on the alien phenomenon, UFOs and the exposure of those covering them up," on Sunday put a video on its 1.1 million-subscriber YouTube channel, secureteam10, about a clip recently released by Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli.
More than 3 million people are expected to stand along New York City's cold streets on Thursday to watch the 91st Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, an annual spectacle of lavish floats, giant balloons and celebrity performers. This year, many revelers will likely be thinking about more than the turkey they're going to eat later in the day—they'll be worrying about security, given that the parade is taking place less than a month after the deadliest terror attack in the city since 9/11.
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".
