'Kong: Skull Island" has been one of the more fascinating films of the year so far. Its box office prowess might not have matched that of "Beauty and the Beast," and its entertainment value might not have rivaled "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," and perhaps it didn't fundamentally change my whole world outlook like "Wonder Woman." But it's chronologically the first film – and second in the series – in a cinematic world that will pit giant monsters against each other.
From Burt in "Mary Poppins" and Rob in "The Dick Van Dyke Show" to D.A. Fletcher in "Dick Tracy" and Cecil in the "Night at the Museum" films, Dick Van Dyke has been a staple in entertainment culture since he made his television debut 60 years ago. He can be seen in the upcoming "Mary Poppins Returns" as the Young Mr. Dawes (he famously played the senior Mr. Dawes in the 1964 film).
When it comes to wine, I don't know what I'm doing. But that's not going to stop me from trying. I promise one day I'll start dipping my toe into rosés, reds and noirs. After all, there's this rumor that's been circulating since as long as I've been able to comprehend rumors that red wine is somehow healthy in moderation. It's good for the heart, right? But the foods I eat most usually consist of salads, fish and chicken. Oh, and candy. Lots and lots of candy. But we'll delve into that another time.
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".
