Ah, the sweet sound of Travis Wall shouting “ROND DE JAMBE!” at 62 talented young adults. We’re halfway through Academy Week, dance fans, and everything is chaos punctuated by people crying and Travis yelling French. It feels so right. (I just remembered that Vanessa Hudgens is legitimately judging this season of So You Think You Can Dance. I miss her.) The Academy is an odd, transitional time for all of us — dance is happening 24/7, but we get to enjoy so little of it.
Diana, Princess of Wales, was granted very little privacy during her years in the spotlight. Now, a new documentary is pulling back the curtain — or opening the family photo album, if you will — on the side of her life she worked hardest to keep to herself: her role as mother. Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, which debuted Monday night on HBO, is a polished contrast: a story told for the cameras about the part of one woman’s life that the cameras didn’t capture.
For all things Comic-Con 2017, visit our all-encompassing EW Comic-Con page. Doctor Who made history earlier this month when Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker was announced as the new Doctor, making her the first woman to the play the role in the show’s 54-year history. And as far as showrunner Steven Moffat is concerned, reports of angry fans have been greatly exaggerated. “There has been no backlash at all,” Moffat insisted at San Diego Comic-Con on Sunday.
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".
