Another year, another cinematic trip into the Second World War and the tenure of Winston Churchill. Will Joe Wright’s ‘Darkest Hour’, starring Gary Oldman as the…well….old man himself, reach the dizzying heights of last year’s ‘Dunkirk’, or will it scrape the middlebrow barrel of the Brian Cox-starring ‘Churchill’, also from 2017? The answer is somewhere in between. What neither of those two film have, however, is a totally captivating, fighting-on-all-the-beaches performance at their centre.
In Hollywood’s long history of making film properties go on way longer than they should have, Pitch Perfect still feels like one of the most unlikely trilogies of all time, and Pitch Perfect 3 triples down on that weirdness. The story of a college acapella group, this third installment comes two years after Glee, the TV show that made singing without instruments briefly cool, was canceled.
Most studies agree - social media is making many of our lives a misery. We compare our lives to people we see on Instagram, who show a distorted, unattainable version of their lives online. This often causes mental health problems for those who cannot help but feel inadequate in comparison to these privileged, corporately sponsored lives. Whose fault are these mental health problems? The ‘influencers’ and the brands they promote.
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".
