Like Nicolas Cage’s acting or Tracy Emin’s bedsheets, there remains no consensus as to whether this routine, first performed 40 years ago, is genius or hammy. If you know it was the groundbreaking starting gun to Bush’s career you’ll say it’s a spectacular meeting of dance, literature and pop never seen before or since. But show it to a clueless Gen-Zer and they’ll tell you it’s Noel Fielding doing a “trapped in a box” bit.
It’s been another week of uh-oh spaghetti ohs for Britain’s barely functioning state and its entirely non-functioning leader. For months, Tory sources have been saying Theresa May will be out if she makes one more mistake, normally seconds before she appoints a careerist scumbag with no military experience as defence secretary or slips on a banana skin.
So, quick gentrification update: a middle-aged middle class married couple, Emma Arnold and Sean Hitzelberger, were having a pretty tough time. According to their Evening Standard interview, they "met while working at the BBC and were reassessing what to do with their lives. Arnold was a freelance editor and stylist who had trained to be a yoga teacher, and Hitzelberger was unhappy in his ad sales career."
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".
