When Manny Jacinto first appears on The Good Place, he says nothing. He’s Jianyu, a Buddhist monk who “obeys a strict code of silence,” which is run of the mill for Asian representation on TV: a token of a character, one that says and does very little. But because this is The Good Place—the trickiest, high-concept-iest sitcom broadcast TV has seen since The Office (naturally, made by the same dude Michael Schur)—nothing about the show is as it seems.
How the Vietnamese-American star of Downsizing convinced the film industry to listen. The latter, as you might imagine, is more difficult to find. Like, say you're director Alexander Payne, looking to cast a woman to play a Vietnamese dissident alongside Matt Damon in Downsizing, your environmentally conscious satire about people who shrink themselves to save the planet. (But really: themselves.)
Last night, NYC welcomed Grammy award winning artist Beck to play an intimate event at Spring Studios. Despite the five inches of snow that came down on the city as the first powder of the season, many attended this exclusive intimate event to show their love for Beck. Spring Studios is a venue known for participating in famous events like the Tribeca film festival and is hidden away in an alley off Tribeca.
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".
