There’s a giggly sparkle to the holiday season that brings out the kid in everybody. That said, it’s been a long time since you sat on Santa’s lap. Here are some adult spins on local holiday faves. Kids aren’t necessarily excluded, but these events are especially fun for those with longer attention spans, later bedtimes, and a 21-plus ID. A few get a little naughty, too. And isn’t that nice!
Coming down from the whirlwind of ComicCon interview videos? (See our favorite below.) And in case you missed it, like that’s possible, the Season 3 trailer:Casting about, so to speak, for new distractions as you await the Sept. 10 return of Outlander on Starz? Dreaming of how Voyager, third in the series of Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novels, will unfold on your flatscreen? Well, it’s no spoiler that boats feature strongly in this book and the coming season.
There was another collective cry of "Oh, no!" coming out of the 2017 Oscars, and it had nothing to do with Sunday night's misplaced envelopes or mistaken best-picture winners, and everything to do with Outlander. - Laurie Conrad, Philadelphia Philly.com
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".
