Spoilers for Star Wars Battlefront II ahead. On Nov. 17, the game that ruffled the feathers of a few angry fanboys when its female protagonist-focused first trailer dropped finally debuted, and gamers met the woman at the center of it. Star Wars Battlefront II's protagonist Iden Versio is a canon hero, so her story officially takes place within the fabric of the Star Wars universe we've come to know through official movies, books, and TV series like Star Wars Rebels.
Spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok ahead. Cate Blanchett's latest performance just might make you want to root for a killer. As Hela, the villain in Thor: Ragnarok, Blanchett defeats a hoard of hundreds, all well-meaning Asgardian warriors, in one of her first scenes. The men are protecting Thor's home after Hela banishes him and takes the throne, but they don't last long.
Spoilers for Stranger Things Season 2 will follow. While the theory was that Season 2 of Stranger Things would include a Dungeons and Dragons monster called the Thessalhydra, things didn't quite work out that way. The season took its own turn, but in the end, the boys' favorite game did come back into play when the Mindflayer from Dungeons & Dragons was brought in to help study and defeat the big Season 2 bad, aka the Shadow Monster.
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".
