Bad if we believe sexual misconduct is commonplaceThe accusations of sexual misconduct that seem to be oozing from Hollywood seem to be multiplying faster than holiday action blockbusters. How did things get this bad? New reports of old perpetrators don’t seem to be to surprising to those of us who live our lives far, far away from the land of superstars. Casting couch lore has long been a “thing.” We’ve seen movies in which starlets trying to make their way fall prey to the powerful.
The history that isn’t taught is the history we need to learnI learned about the Crystal City Family Internment Camp in the late ’80s, during a Spring Break visit to Washington, D.C.My family was touring the the National Museum of American History, and we came upon a display about the South Texas facility that detained families of Japanese descent during World War II.
Mi ‘Apa had a good friend everyone referred to as Chino. He was not Chinese. He didn’t appear Asian. As far as I know, he was not even of Asian descent. He did, however, have very curly hair. Mi ‘Apa and Chino laughed a lot. They were like-minded and always laughed at the same jokes. He and his wife spoke Spanish with my parents, and they spoke Spanish and English with their kids — Los Chinitos — the way my parents did with me.
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".
