There is a lot of money to be made by becoming a competitive Magic: The Gathering player. The prize funds for big tournaments can reach up to fifty thousand dollars for the winner. It should come as no surprise that players will try and find every advantage they can, especially when the amount of prize money is that high. One of the most effective ways to gain an advantage in Magic: The Gathering is to use cards in a way that the developers never expected them to be used.
The Majin Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z was the point at which the series made the least sense. Characters would spend issues/episodes gaining power-ups, only for them to be rendered useless when finally used. This was the point when Akira Toriyama had started to smell the freedom of his upcoming retirement, which is why everything became so weird and unfocused during the final arc of the story.
A popular TV show can easily run for ten seasons or more. A network isn’t going to give up the golden goose that easily, even if the show has obviously run its course and burned through all possible interesting storylines between its characters. The solution to this is obvious – just add more characters. Adding new members to the cast of a popular TV show is a very risky move. The audience can quickly turn on someone who they don’t feel fits in with the established characters that they love.
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".
