It’s a reasonable theory that each of Motherland’s seven episodes depicts its inept protagonists entering a subsequent circle of hell. The third instalment of this nail-biting comedy drama about middle-class London parents started with Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin) negotiating to hire a nanny who would also have to hire a (cheaper) nanny to watch her own kids. The human centipede of childcare stands at the gates of the Motherland pyre, the most effective contraception going.
When she was 19, Charlotte Gainsbourg saw a news flash on the TV saying her father was dead. Firemen were breaking into Serge Gainsbourg’s house on Rue de Verneuil, near the hotel where we meet. After his death, Gainsbourg, her stepmother Bambou and half-sister Kate Barry lay next to his body as well-wishers visited. “We were like dogs around him,” she says. “It was a weird few days – it felt like a week. I didn’t want to let go. So, I stayed until I couldn’t.”She laughs, surprisingly.
In August, Taylor Swift released Look What You Made Me Do, the first single from her new album, Reputation, which finally emerged from its shroud of secrecy on November 10. The track and its subsequent video broke three records within a week, including first-day streaming figures on Spotify and YouTube respectively.
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".
