Photo: Frank Ockenfels 3/AMC Mad Men finally returns to AMC with its season-seven premiere this Sunday night, and we can understand if you've got a little bit of anxiety about it. Sure, you're excited for Don, Peggy, Roger, and the rest to return, but it's been so long since the last original episode that you can barely remember what they've been up to! Or maybe you've been meaning to catch up on the show, but with the season premiere just days away, you think it can't be done.
Get excited, ladies! Robert Pattinson returns to theaters in two weeks in Remember Me, a romantic drama about two star-crossed, NYU-attending lovers (Pattinson and Lost's Emilie de Ravin) canoodling their way around New York before graduating, getting married, having babies, and living happily ever after. Or so the trailer would pretty much have you believe! Some folks on the Internet were talking today about the film's big surprise twist, and we got curious, so we did a little investigating.
Yesterday's rumor that an angry Jay Leno, too, might leave NBC was apparently just talk: TMZ reports today that Jay and the network have signed a deal to give him back his old hour-long time slot at 11:35, and his show will once again be called The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. If true, one assumes a financial settlement with Conan must be near, since signing a new Tonight Show host would presumably breach O'Brien's current contract. Who knows, though! Stay tuned, we guess.
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".
