Need a good laugh to get you through the rest of the week? Well, Netflix is there for you tonight. A brand new stand-up special from Parks and Recreation writer Joe Mande is officially available on the streaming platform now, and it’s already won awards. Granted, those awards came from Mande himself, but that doesn’t make the special any less worthy.
Most actors, and Ed Sheeran, would jump at the chance to be on Game of Thrones. But for Sand Snake Nymeria actress Jessica Henwick, she needed a bit of convincing to return. “I’m not going to lie, a part of me was like, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t do it. Maybe she just does disappear!’ And then the fans will never know what happened to her,” she told Entertainment Weekly. So what finally got her to participate in the HBO drama? A fateful call from showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Every so often we are blessed with a game show moment so crazy, so unbelievable, and so undeniably frustrating that you want to rip your own hair out. Today, we were given this gift. Courtesy of British game show Letterbox, the two contestants, Lyndsey and Troy, take turns picking letters in order to reveal the name of a fictional character. Once 6 of the 9 letters are in place, most people, including the studio audience, are ready to easily solve the puzzle.
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".
