Blues great BB King has been rushed to hospital in Las Vegas where he has been admitted. The 89-year-old guitarist, a 17-time Grammy winner and consistently cited as one of the 20th century's greatest guitarists, was suffering from a "diabetes-related emergency", according to TMZ. He is said to be suffering dehydration. King's admittance was apparently confirmed to the Los Angeles Times by his representatives, although no updates were given on his condition.
Taylor Swift begone, this week it's Rihanna who rules the internet. Fresh from being unveiled as America's top digital recording artist, Rihanna's new music video clip is making huge waves. And why wouldn't it? In the seven-minute clip (be warned this is really not safe for work) the Bajan-American pop uberstar and her crew act out a technicoloured, blood-spattered gangsta revenge fantasy kidnapping of a rich white woman amid a haze of ganja smoke.
Just when you thought Nickelback couldn't get any worse, they have delivered one of the worst songs and video clips ever produced by a major label. Or one of the best, if you think Chad Kroeger and co. just might be satirical geniuses. Ladies and gentleman, Nickelback have gone disco-funk, with the breathtakingly cheesy and sleazy She Keeps Me Up, an abomination so politically incorrect it views like a horrific window into one of Kroeger's dreams.
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".
