Earlier this year, Netflix introduced a new, game-changing feature to its service: a “Skip Intro” button that allows you to instantly zip past the opening credits of many of its television shows and even some movies. This is an incredibly useful feature if you’ve been binge-watching Friends and don’t want to hear the Rembrandts sing about how they’ll be there for you for the sixth time in a row.
In August, Donald Trump used his first presidential pardon on Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, who had been convicted for illegally profiling Latinos even after a federal judge ordered him to stop. But as John Oliver explained in depth on Sunday, the sins of Arpaio, “a man who answers the question: what if a decaying russet potato somehow hated Mexicans,” weren’t limited to just that one conviction.
Yes, there’s another Fifty Shades movie coming out next year, and from the looks of the first teaser, it’s going to have more sex, action, and rampant materialism than the other two Fifty Shades movies combined. Fifty Shades Darker ended with a proposal, so it makes sense that Fifty Shades Freed will pick up with the wedding and honeymoon of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and the improbably named Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson).
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".
