The bright lights and dancing shoes are back as BBC's Strictly Come Dancing has returned to our TV screens for its 15th series. Five weeks in, the competition continues to heat up every time the contestants take to the dancefloor, as the numbers witter down until one act is left standing. While this series undeniably has plenty of frontrunners, some of them are more likely to win than others.
With the fallout of Season 5 finally in the rearview mirror, Arrow has returned to The CW for its sixth season. And the best thing about it is that we're only two episodes in, and it's already proving to be one hell of a season. With Black Siren back, Oliver's identity temporarily exposed and Diggle suffering from the effects of the Lian Yu explosion, it's clear that Team Arrow has a lot to deal with this year. And all of that was apparent in the season's second episode, "Tribute."
There's no doubt about it, Batman and Superman are DC's two biggest heroes. In fact, they are probably the two biggest superheroes in the world (and that's saying a lot because Batman doesn't have super powers - he's just a badass hero). And this week, they will clash when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theatres! So what better time to explore their relationship in some of the many other formats.
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".
