Army Specialist Etienne J. Murphy, 22, died five months ago while fighting ISIS in Syria. He was an infantryman with the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, and was driving an armoured car when it rolled over and killed him. During his time in service, Murphy was awarded the Parachutist Badge, the Army Achievement Medal with three oak leaf clusters, the NATO medal, and the Operation Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal with Campaign Star. Posthumously, he was awarded the Army Commendation Medal.
So Hollywood has finally bared its moral fangs, expelling disgraced Harvey Weinstein from the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences. He’s the first person ever to be banished on grounds of ‘sexually predatory behaviour’. Which, when you consider who still remains a member of the Academy, might just strike you, as a little odd, if not bloody, shamefully ridiculous.
'Harvey…how's your life?' I asked, winning myself the Most Stupid Question of the Year Award. He sighed loudly, paused for a second or two, then chuckled, wryly. 'My life? It's really not that great right now to be honest, Piers…'At the time, he was still fighting to save his movie mogul career, and his marriage, after the New York Times bombshell report disclosing he had paid off eight women for sexual harassment.
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".
