After several people were hurt on Sunday when scaffolding collapsed in Soho, Fox 5 set off on a man-on-the-street interview. They stumbled upon the NBA’s everyman: Thompson. The 27-year-old Warriors shooting guard, who was in town to play the Brooklyn Nets, wasn’t too big-time to give his humble assessment of the scaffolding situation in the Big Apple. “I usually observe if the piping and stuff is new.
Yesterday it was announced that Blake Shelton was crowned People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. The all-important, made-up title has been previously held by dudes who have perfected the art of wearing tight t-shirts and winking: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Channing Tatum, David Beckham, Adam Levine. Once the internet got wind of the news, they freaked out like it was Steve Buscemi on the cover. Had Chris Evans been kidnapped? Did Jason Mamoa die?
Grandmas are known for their great hugs, killer chocolate-chip cookies and slipping you a $20 spot at the end of your visit. They are not known for being particularly tech savvy. Case in point: This adorable Texas gran, who accidentally filmed herself instead of the halftime show at Saturday’s Texas A&M game. Luckily, a kind gentleman stepped forward midshoot to make her aware of the flub. “Miss, just so you know, you’re recording yourself,” he said, as she turned off the recording.
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".
