Whatever else you think of Mayor Marty Walsh, you’ve got to admit the guy’s got the proclamation thing down. Hizzoner, who previously decreed a Guster Day, Riot Grrrl Day, Patti Smith Day, and a Peter Wolf Day in Boston, has proclaimed Monday to be Judd Apatow Day in celebration of the writer/director/comedian who’ll be performing that night at the Wilbur.
Alas, Oscar winner Natalie Portman will not be playing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the big screen. The Harvard alum, who’d been attached to portray notorious RBG since 2015, has pulled out of the biopic and Ginsburg will instead be played by Felicity Jones, the British actress best known for her roles in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and as Jane Wilde in “The Theory of Everything,” a performance that earned her an Oscar nomination.
Following a screening at Outfest last weekend of his 1997 film, “Chasing Amy,” director Kevin Smith talked about the on-screen kiss between Affleck and Jason Lee. Smith recalled that Affleck said “a man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face,” and when the scene was over, he declared: “Now, I’m a serious actor.”Paper Magazine tweeted the anecdote and, predictably perhaps, it elicited a strong reaction.
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".
