In the wake of a week when #TimesUp and #MeToo again dominated headlines—starting at the Golden Globes and continuing with allegations against James Franco —a new frontier in the conversation around sexual consent and coercion opened up over the weekend following unsettling allegations concerning actor and comedian Aziz Ansari. In a report posted January 13 on Babe.net , a woman—who gave her story under the pseudonym "Grace"—shared that she went out on a date with Ansari in September 2017.
For most of us, a new job might mean a new wardrobe and first-day haircut; however, actors are often signing on for much bigger changes. Case in point: Millie Bobby Brown , who plays Stranger Things ' Eleven. Back on the first season of the show, she introduced herself to the audience with a totally shaved headâ€”a bold look, especially for a then-12-year-old.
We all have those super-organized people in our lives: the ones who always seem to get things done long before they’re due, keep their homes and offices clean and decluttered, and never forget to do that one random task. It may seem like those friends or coworkers are running on overdrive or have better memories than the rest of us to get it all done, but the truth is, the secrets to their success are things anyone is capable of doing.
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".
