I remember parts of that night with surprising clarity. I saw the men inside my mom’s room when I got up to go to the bathroom. I was 7 years old, and we lived in Philadelphia at the time. Half asleep, I remember thinking in a vague sort of way that something about the scene was off. Some internal alarm was set in my head, and I remember telling myself not to flush the toilet because of the sound it would make. Sometime later I woke up, seized in truly indescribable panic.
Each year, a moment in pop culture becomes that October’s most popular Halloween costume. In 2013, everyone dressed as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke getting creepy on each other at the VMAs. In 2014, everyone who didn’t go as Pharrell’s giant mountie hat went as, well, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke again. Pop culture has that kind of staying power. This year, pop culture’s biggest story was, and is, Caitlyn Jenner.
Everyone has a romance that ended badly. Maybe a red flag popped up early and led you to walk out. Maybe it took a breakup to show you the monstrous side of a person you once trusted. The flutters of butterflies can hide a person’s ugliness at first, but eventually something snaps. After his acquittal for the murder of teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, Zimmerman has appeared in the news for allegedly committing a series of violent offenses, including multiple incidents of domestic violence.
Judge throws shade at trans ban: “A capricious, arbitrary, and unqualified tweet of new policy does not trump the methodical and systematic review by military stakeholders qualified to understand the ramifications of policy changes.” https://t.co/cgbQrRfdIv
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".
