The 75th Golden Globe Awards was the first major Hollywood award show since over eighty women spoke out about producer Harvey Weinstein’s predatory sexual behavior. In the months leading up to the Golden Globes, more survivors of sexual harassment and abuse came forward to share their stories.
After two movies of increasing evil, it’s time to admit that Kylo Ren is a better Star Wars villain than Darth Vader. The turned Ben Solo returned to the galaxy in The Last Jedi with a vengeance. Adam Driver’s nuanced performance was already one of the highlights of The Force Awakens, and he only outdid himself in the new Rian Johnson film, which centered on the dichotomy between Kylo’s story and Rey’s, offers a compelling story of conflict and the possibility of redemption.
This article contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. One of the most shocking twists in Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Kylo Ren’s betrayal of Supreme Leader Snoke, a move that makes him a Sith in all but name. After Ben Solo brings Rey to his master, she is defiant of the Supreme Leader, and so Snoke orders Kylo to kill her. Instead, Kylo uses the Force to ignite Rey’s lightsaber, which is sitting on the arm of Snoke’s chair, cutting the Supreme Leader in half.
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".
