The commuter train from Manhattan to Tarrytown is late. Not because of the usual incompetence on the Metro-North line that strands thousands of commuters every day and jams the six o’clock news with stories about misery, deteriorating rails and inconvenience. No, today the train is filled with terrorists, criminals, cowards carrying guns and persons of interest to the N.Y.P.D., all being tracked by Liam Neeson.
Every play worth the price of a ticket, whether it’s in a Broadway temple or a summer barn in Maine, has the same obligation: to tell a story that sends the audience home feeling something. This is a fact most of today’s playwrights choose to forget or ignore, and a tradition the resourceful, versatile and charismatic John Lithgow celebrates in a pleasant new Broadway production called Stories By Heart at the American Airlines Theatre. It’s an evening of erudition, magic and joy.
A hit with New York critics, if not the bewildered public, Paul Thomas Anderson’s odd, elegant romantic drama Phantom Thread has finally opened in cinemas nationwide. Gorgeous camerawork weaves a rich tapestry as the backdrop for this unconventional tale of obsession, desire, and hidden emotions starring Daniel Day-Lewis as a London couturier in the 1950s.
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".
