I follow The Rock on Instagram. So do you. I don’t need to look at your Following list. Don’t show me your Following list. You follow The Rock on Instagram. Legally it is now an offence to “have an Instagram account and not be following The Rock on Instagram”. The Rock wields an influence it would be fair to call colossal. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has 98.4 million followers on Instagram. How many people have Instagram? I haven’t run the numbers, but it’s about 98.4 million.
This article is a preview from the Winter 2017 edition of New Humanist. The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve by Stephen GreenblattOn the face of things, writes Stephen Greenblatt with refreshing candour in his account of the Adam and Eve myth, the story at the heart of his book is insane. That the fruit-based misdemeanour of a distant ancestor might have doomed humanity to inescapable suffering is a theory difficult to credit.

And here's one of those hippos we saw earlier. I mean they've probably got something to do with it. Mind you, you can't ignore the mouth. They can both open their mouths a hell of a long way.

@thismademecool No worries. Good to hear advice from the horse's mouth. I BELIEVE it was on the British Comedy Guide mailout, which is always full of good stuff. First one I've heard so far; TV producers would indeed be my main area of interest, yep.
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".
