It started the morning of Oct. 28, 2007. I was working early shifts at the Hotel Donaldson front desk at the time and was already on edge about our VIP up in the Big Dog Suite. I’m an Ozzy fan, but celebs can be a handful. I’d hate to have to burn my Black Sabbath shirts because I found out Ozzy was a jerk to our staff (you can tell a lot about people by how they treat “the help”).A celeb’s ego turned out to be the least of my problems.
Perk up your ears though, Joshies (I assume that’s what his fans call themselves? ), because Duhamel has a starring role in one of the biggest blockbuster releases of the year. The hunky 45-year-old Minot native plays a starring role in “Call of Duty: WWII,” the latest in the mammoth Activision video game franchise that spans 14 titles dating back to 2003.It was released on Nov. 3, and its first three days of sales “Call of Duty: WWII” made $500 million, Gamespot reported.
Campbell, a state legislator and agri-businessman based in northeast North Dakota’s Walsh County, has been carpet-bombing the state with an extensive advertising blitz, reportedly lending his own race $425,000. Whether that blitz has been paying off with Republican primary voters is, as yet, up in the air, but it has successfully caught a lot of attention from our pundits, including Mike McFeely, Jack Zaleski and Rob Port. (You can find a collection of coverage on Campbell’s campaign here.)
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".
