Forget Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps or McKayla Maroney's stankface. The biggest story of the Olympics has finally come to fruition: The Spice Girls are back. The group performed at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, running through a medley of hits that included "Wannabe" (natch) and "Spice Up Your Life." They arrived on the big stage in five separate black cabs, or hackney carriages.
Since the early days of his presidency, Saudi Arabia has aggressively courted Donald Trump’s affections. The kingdom rolled out the carpet for Trump’s state visit to Riyadh, where officials projected Trump’s face onto buildings and showered him with exorbitant gifts. And while the United States has long adopted a laissez-faire view toward Saudi Arabia’s belligerence in the region, no recent president has been as openly enamored of the nation and its rulers as Trump.
Nicki Minaj's latest album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, hits stores in the U.S. on Tuesday. To prepare our readers for the album (which is not getting the best reviews), HuffPost Entertainment listened to every single song in one sitting and wrote down the lines that stood out. (For a track-by-track preview, head over to The Boombox.) 1. "I am the ultimate Svengali, you b-----s can't even spell that." - "Roman Holiday"2. "Quack quack to a duck and a chicken too / Put the hyena in a freakin' zoo!"
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".
