Dear NewsBot, I've got a bone to pick with you, whatever gender you may be. I'm angry. And I'm angry about the fact that I'm even angry, that I've become one of those clowns writing an "open letter." The truth is I typically don't care about TV news or, as I like to refer to it, TV "news."
Rebuilding America Now, a super-PAC affiliated with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, is running an anti-Hillary Clinton ad. It's election season, this is what campaigns do. But, according to the New York Post, the Clinton camp is so worked up over the spot that it's reportedly pressuring TV stations to not run the spot.
The world is in upheaval. China and the Philippines are squabbling over a patch of ocean. The European Union is about to be rent asunder by Brexit. Even as the country struggles with the sort of racial tension not seen since 1968, the U.S.
If Life hands you lemons ... Reckon that'll come in handy. This scurvy is a bitch. Oh well isn't Life a regular fancy lad, swanning about handing out lemons like he's the King of Citrus. I don't have room for another damn thing. Get 'em out of here. Lemonade?
Bonjour from France, yall. I'm typing this post out while hauling ass through the South of France on a TGV train, the arid, hilly countryside and villages filled with sandy-colored houses topped with red-tile roofs. It's the sort of region in which you could film Western movies and the audience wouldn't know the difference.
As I write this, the sun hasn't quite set on the final weekday of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. And I really wish it would. You'd think a Louisiana boy would be made of tougher stuff, but today the heat is finally getting to me.
What Michael Phelps does in the dark has earned the spotlight for Under Armour and Droga5 at the 2016 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. An ad from the "Rule Yourself Campaign" and featuring the Olympic Gold Medalist preparing for his last shot at glory took home the Grand Prix in the Film Craft Category, which honors "the quality and aesthetic of the individual elements of the film-making process."
Cannes Lions In an effort to simplify the very complex, the United Nations has turned to branding and, in particular, the world's advertising, marketing and communication agencies. And what better place to do that than the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity? U.N.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
