It was a scene straight out of a Hollywood disaster movie, including real-life actress Kate Winslet, when Virgin mogul Richard Branson's private island residence erupted in flames in the middle of the night, leaving guests 15 minutes to escape before the home was reduced to rubble. "It was something of a nightmare, reminded me of the film, 'Mandalay,'" Branson said today on "Good Morning America." "We're all glad to be well, glad to be alive, glad to have gotten through it."
After the first three films in the Hunger Games series transported fans to the woods of District 12, two deadly battle arenas, and the grim confines of a subterranean complex, the final installment Mockingjay—Part 2 is taking Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to areas of Panem’s seat of power that have yet to be showcased on the big screen. Fans of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling YA series can look forward to an up-close view of the Capitol.
Just keep swimming! The first poster for Pixar’s Finding Dory was released Monday, showcasing a sweet throwback to 2003’s Finding Nemo. “She just kept swimming,” says the tag on the poster, which gives fans a look at Dory’s fin as she swims in the ocean. Ellen DeGeneres – who voices the adorable, absentminded blue tang fish named Dory – shared the poster on Twitter, with an announcement about a trailer to be released Tuesday.
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".
