There is some dastardly dumpling drama brewing in Williamsburg today. Yesterday, Eater reported that the Bedford Ave outpost of beloved eatery Vanessa's Dumpling House was shuttered by the city, and now North Brooklyn will have to find a new place to sate the drunchies post-Skinny Dennis. LIFE IS SO CRUEL.
The Handmaid’s Tale, a television program based on a novel that gave me night terrors even before the U.S. government started hurtling toward its own version of the Republic of Gilead, will launch its second season in April, and apparently this one will be “darker” than Season 1, as if I need that kind of stress right now. (For those of you who have not seen the show’s first season or read the book, there are spoilers below.)
Donald Trump, a man who kicked off his presidential campaign by claiming Mexican immigrants were rapists and criminals, told reporters at a press pool event in Florida on Sunday night that he is “not a racist” and is in fact “the least racist person you have ever interviewed.” The latter statement could be true, provided the reporters on hand had never interviewed a person before, but the first one is certainly not.There’s been renewed interest in the president’s bigotry following reports...
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".
