When the Planet of the Apes saga began with Franklin J. Schaffner’s 1968 original, the titular apes were supposed to be a shocking revelation–apes that are smarter than the humans, and who view smart humans as a threat to their very way of life. Not all apes thought this way, with the compassionate Cornelius and Zira helping confused astronaut Taylor.
When it was announced last year that Nintendo would be releasing a sort of kitschy device that looked like a miniature version of their original Nintendo Entertainment System and came with 25 games loaded in, our nostalgic brains all jumped for joy. It was definitely very fun to play the old favorites, though the incredibly short controller cord and the fact that almost nobody could buy the darn things dampened the joy a bit.
Back in a more analog time of TV watching, if you wanted to make sure you could watch a show or event a second (or twentieth) time, you had to record it on a Video Home System (VHS) tape in a thing called a Video Cassette Recorder (VCR). The quality would be eh, whatever, but if you used the SLP setting, you could fit three full movies on one tape. Or, as in the case of me, three full Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes, perfect for marathons any day of the week.
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 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
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".
