“In the time of ‘Alias Grace,’ if you were an immigrant or a woman you didn’t have any rights,” reveals the series star Sarah Gadon in our new webchat (watch the exclusive video above). “These are things at the forefront of our mind right now. There is a lot of anxiety concerning gender politics and immigration.
“When I was asked to direct by the producers at first I kind of ‘aw shucks-ed’ it. I thought they were being nice,” confesses Aaron Sorkin about “Molly’s Game” in our recent webcam interview (watch the exclusive video above). The film marks the directorial debut for the Oscar and Emmy winning screenwriter (“The Social Network”, “The West Wing”). He adds that this was a game changer “for a guy who until recently has written people talking in rooms. I hear these movies more than I see them.
The Duffer Brothers‘ retro sci-fi horror drama “Stranger Things” returned for its second installment on Netflix just in time for this year’s Halloween festivities. Ghostbusters costumes, a mind flaying villain and nougat chocolate bars contributed to a season much bigger in scale than the original outing. Also, actors Sean Austin, Sadie Sink and Paul Reiser joined Emmy nominees Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour in the Season 2 cast.
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".
