Here at Decider, we have a very popular feature that we call Decider After Dark. It covers all things sultry and scandalous, most of which occurs in the evening hours after the sun has hit the proverbial hay. The story that you’re about to read, however, happens in broad daylight, but we’ll still classify it under the “After Dark” banner. Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Dodgers played a series against the Kansas City Royals at the venerable Dodger Stadium.
Today we honor the birth of our great nation and all it represents. Today we also are likely spending the day frolicking in the surf and sun, grilling up hot dogs and hamburgers, and waiting for the brief space of time when fireworks will light up the sky. At some point, we will be inside, though, and we’ll want to wind down with the perfect movie for the Fourth of July. So what makes a great Fourth of July flick?
It’s almost time to wish America a very happy 241st birthday, which (hopefully) means you can stay up late because you’ve got the day off tomorrow. Tomorrow night’s the night for fireworks, so why not plant yourself on the couch this evening and find something good to stream? In addition to Decider’s What To Watch recommendations for the evening, we’ve got the lowdown on what’s new on streaming tonight.
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".
