"I have a very multi-cultural family and a huge Thanksgiving planned this year for 25 people in Los Angeles. In addition to the usual turkey, we always have some of the greatest and somewhat trashy American sides. French’s Green Bean Casserole made with a can of Campbell’s Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, topped with French’s Crispy Fried Onions always makes it to the table, as well as Ritz Cracker corn casserole.
If for some reason you did not devote your Sunday night to watching an awards show where adult contemporary and teen pop stars reign supreme at the same time, here’s everything you missed. The 2017 American Music Awards gave the minivan majority what they want…along with plenty of lip syncing, glittering gowns and the chance for the iconic Diana Ross to share the stage with La La songstress Ashlee Simpson.
Prince William is speaking out against cyberbullying, as part of a special task force. Kensington Palace has been documenting Prince William’s stand against online harassment on Instagram, including his visits to YouTube and Google and his meetings with people who have been personally affected by it. Maybe that explains why he won’t set up his own social media account.
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".
