An attorney for U.S. Rep. John Conyers, the Detroit Democrat who is embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal, tried Friday to discredit two of the women accusing the 88-year-old congressman of inappropriate behavior. "Marion Brown has been on the radio saying that the congressman is a predator," Arnold Reed said during a press conference outside of Conyers' Detroit home.
Attendees of the Foo Fighters show at this weekend’s Summer Sonic Festival in Tokyo knew they’d be experiencing some high-octane rock, but little did they know they’d also be subjected to one of the most epic pranks in music history — and luckily it was captured on video (above). “Ladies and gentlemen,” Grohl intoned solemnly, “would you please welcome our new best friend: Rick Astley.”After a quick hug, Grohl added: “This is f**king crazy.
Foo Fighters surprised fans earlier this week by announcing an intimate performance at Chicago’s Metro club, and those who were lucky enough to snag tickets to the Friday night show were in for an even bigger surprise when the band delivered an “Everlong” performance, playing 32 songs over the course of three-and-a-half hours. â€œTonight weâ€™re gonna try and break our record for longest show ever,â€? frontman Dave Grohl told the crowd of about 1,100, reports Stereogum.
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".
