Variety has released its list of the highest-paid TV actors of the past year, and coming in tied for third in the drama category are the stars of the phenomenally popular HBO show Game of Thrones . Despite their comparatively unknown status outside of the show — which Time just declared the most popular in the world — the top Game of Thrones actors are earning impressive sums.
The Rock has fallen from the top of the mountain. The latest Forbes list of the world's highest-paid actors now puts Mark Wahlberg at No. 1, with earnings of $68 million in the past 12 months, pre-tax. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who was ranked as the world's highest-paid actor last year, fell just short of the top spot at $65 million.
Tomorrow's Powerball drawing could see someone bringing home $700 million, the highest jackpot figure since January 2016's $1.6 billion, and potentially the third-biggest lottery prize ever handed out. The one-time cash pay out for hitting the jackpot in Powerball, which is played in 44 states, has now reached $443.3 million. (That's before taxes , mind you. Winners will see 25% deducted in federal taxes, plus even more in local taxes if they live in a state that taxes lottery winnings.)
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".
