Louis Herthum was only in a handful of episodes in the first season of HBO’s sci-fi hit “Westworld,” but it was enough to leave a mark (and garner some Emmy buzz as well). His character, Peter Abernathy, was one of the first hosts that audiences saw experience a significant breakdown after finding a photo of a woman from outside the park. After he was retired, a whole lot went down inside Westworld that no one could have predicted, including the actors on the show.
Last week on “Empire” we saw Jamal’s (Jussie Smollett) love triangle possibly implode under the weight of its own social media presence. When D-Major (Tobias Truvillion) made his coming-out a grand gesture of love for all the world to see, it blew up in his face when he walked in on Jamal snuggled up on the couch with Phillip… While still live-streaming.
Bad news friends: Today is only Wednesday. That means you still have two full days of work to get through before the sweet release of the weekend. And if that thought just made you facepalm at your desk… It might just be time to check for a little bit and re-charge. The easiest (and cheapest) way we’ve found to do that is to turn to your TV, and find something that can take you away… At least for the next 30-60 minutes.
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".
