A decade has gone by since Heath Ledger passed away. At the time, we were still living in W’s country, teetering on the verge of a recession, which had already shown its effects on the global stock market. Kanye West and Taylor Swift were coup de la. A high school science teacher and a slacker reject were making meth a household name. Cloverfield was all the rage. And somewhere in there was talk of America’s first black president — a Senator out of Chicago with a killer book and a big plan.
Hans Zimmer might be done scoring superhero films, but he’s certainly open to performing them. On Wednesday night, the legendary German composer tipped off his first proper tour at London’s The SSE Arena, where he entertained the crowd with various selections of his iconic scores. Naturally, he revisited his work on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.
Ash Vs. Evil Dead returns to Starz on February 25th, and we can already hear the chainsaw buzzing. The network just dropped the first official trailer, which promises another gory, rock ‘n’ roll outing with the Ghost Beaters — ahem, Ashley Williams (Bruce Campbell), Pablo Bolivar (Ray Santiago), and Kelly Maxwell (Dana DeLorenzo). Don’t worry, Lucy Lawless is also back as Ash’s foil, Ruby Knowby, but she’s not the only one fucking up his plans.
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".
