In 2016 Alaska Dispatch News multimedia journalist Scott Jensen traveled to Glacier View, Alaska to document how the town celebrates the Fourth of July in a very special way each year. The Glacier View folks have plenty of food, a parade, and an airplane flyover, however, they take things a step further by launching vehicles over a cliff to watch them smash into pieces below. Scott released behind the scenes footage to answer some of the questions he received after his first story was published.
Fox Searchlight released the first official trailer for The Shape of Water, a magical Cold War era romance film directed by the great Guillermo del Toro. It will follow a lonely, mute woman named Elisa (Sally Hawkins) who works as a janitor in a secret underwater government laboratory.

To celebrate his millionth YouTube subscriber, Binging With Babish host Andrew Rea gave viewers a behind the scene look at his show setup and created the hilarious, super-sized entrée from the Saturday Night Live classic “Taco Town” parody commercial. Andrew made a crepe, pizza, multiple tacos and smashed them all together before deep-frying it all for 25 minutes. He finished it off right by then placing the surprisingly tasty looking monstrosity into a bag full of chili.
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".
