If you are one of the 10 million daily viewers of Judge Judy, you know that its eponymous Judith Sheindlin is sharp as a tack and blunt as a hammer. Regardless, the National Enquirer and its sister publication the National Examiner recently published stories claiming Sheindlin was suffering from a host of ailments, including Alzheimer’s and depression, and that she cheated on her husband. All of this was, in Judy parlance, BALONEY!!!!
Do you ever wonder what actors are smoking when their characters smoke weed? Well, wonder no more, because Kirsten Dunst shared how it’s supposed to go (and how it actually went) on at least one set. In Woodshock, Dunst’s character gets high a lot. What she smoked on set, she said last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, was generally “movie pot,” which is, “whatever they roll...tobacco if you smoke cigarettes, they roll herby stuff (not herb, but you know), like fake whatever. Oregano.”Sounds reasonable.
In 1990, George Michael risked throwing his immense fame away for the sake of his artistry. He was tired of being a commodity, and instead of merely complaining, he actually did something about it. Coming off the phenomenal global success of his solo debut Faith, he recorded a mostly downcast, singer-songwriter album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, refused to appear in any of its videos, and threatened to never let himself be photographed again.
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".
