Sitting on a sofa on the mezzanine of his three-level Travis Heights home, Chris Tomlinson is explaining the series of unusual-looking support beams in the kitchen ceiling. “The guy who designed the house wanted to put a big grand piano [above the kitchen], and he needed a structural element to support the weight,” he says. Those beams are among many unique traits of the two-bedroom, 2,800-square-foot home Tomlinson and wife Shalini Ramanathan bought in 2013.
Everything you’ve heard about Lady Bird is true: It really is one of the best movies of the year. Actually, with so many relatable moments, it’s one of the best coming-of-age movies ever made. There are two reasons for all the fuss: its star, Saoirse Ronan, and writer-director, Greta Gerwig. Both are deserving of some Oscar love for their work here. Ronan, who grew up in Ireland and twice has been nominated for an Academy Award, is sublime in the title role.
I first learned about the documentary Dealt back in October 2014. I received an email with the subject: “Local film—blind magician.” The sender, Bradley Jackson, a young filmmaker who we had featured in the magazine before, was writing to let us know about a new project he was working on.
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".
