Source: Historic Hotels of AmericaHalloween may be behind us, but ghosts and spirits don’t know the difference. They still linger around their chosen habitat, occasionally offering up a sign to the living to notice them. If you are the type of person who doesn’t mind a celestial visit to your room in the middle of the night, then these haunted hotels are the perfect getaway. Or if you’re a skeptic with a healthy dose of Casper curiosity, spend the night in one of these hotels — if you dare.
The cinematic folklore ofdates back decadesThe good news is we have come a long way in resurrecting the look of the mummy (which began with pieces of surgical cloth wrapped around his body). The mummy (Arnold Vosloo) in the Brendan Fraser trilogy beginning in 1999 withand wrapping up within 2008 evolved into a ghost-like figure with a bandaged head ejecting beetles from its mouth.
The recent women-only screenings of Wonder Woman might have brought some men up in arms, but there might be good reason for it. This is a film that is not only entertaining — but it is also extremely empowering for women and young girls finding their way in the world. At its core, it is a female superhero played with both power and softness by Gal Gadot. There is also an army of Amazonian women who are just as badass in battle as any man.
@WfccWomen From #AngelinaJolie: In a year that has been marked by women’s solidarity and greater awareness of injustices towards women, it means a lot for our film to be recognized. I’m grateful to the Women Film Critics Circle for all they do to support female voices in film.
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".
