Michael Wolff’s bestselling book on the Trump White House, Fire and Fury, may now be turned into a TV series, according to reports on Wednesday. But who should play the key figures? We decided to ask the app of the moment, Google Arts & Culture, which matches people’s faces to artworks hanging in 17 major museums. Because why not. President. Virtually everyone around him is concerned about his fitness for office, according to Wolff’s book.
Good morning. Today is the third and probably final day of the hearing to decide whether Paralympic and Olympic star Oscar Pistorius should be freed on bail while he awaits trial for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. The hearing will start at 11am local time (9am GMT). The prosecution was dealt another blow this morning when it emerged that Hilton Botha, the detective leading the investigation into Pistorius, is himself charged with attempted murder.
SPOILER ALERT: This weekly blog is for those who are watching The Thick of It series three. Don't read on if you haven't seen episode fiveThe Thick of It seems to be broadening its range of targets specifically so it can start insulting as many BBC colleagues as possible. In this episode Mark Kermode (big hands), Jools Holland (no one watches his Hootenanny) and Jamie Theakston ("the prostitute thing") all get it in the neck – although guest star Richard Bacon has a pretty easy ride.
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".
