Aseason of beauty and bounty, fall is. And particularly for books. This year brings big new biographies of Gorbachev, Grant, and FDR, pointed personal takes on politics from Hillary Clinton and Ta-Nehisi Coates, and fresh fiction from Jennifer Egan, Alice McDermott, James McBride, and others. Here are some we can’t wait to read.
So Tom Brady will not be the only Patriot to have a new book coming out in the fall. Star wide receiver Julian Edelman announced on Twitter this morning that his memoir, “Relentless,’’ written with CSNNE personality Tom E. Curran, will hit the shelves on Oct. 24. Edelman has had something of a storybook rise in the NFL. From California, the little-known Kent State quarterback went to the Pats in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft, and coach Bill Belichick turned him into a receiver.
Former FBI director James Comey, who was fired by President Trump for his pursuit of an investigation over the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, has just cut a book deal with Flatiron Books on “good, ethical leadership” and how it produces “sound decisions.” The new work, set to publish in spring, will examine high-stakes situations over the past two decades, which is expected to include Donald Trump’s presidential campaign’s ties to Russia and the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a...
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".
