One of my favorite things about October is getting to see all of my very talented pals participate in Inktober. Inktober is a wonderful time of year where artists all over the world challenge themselves to create a new piece of work every day in October. Originally it was created as a way to help improve skills, develop good habits, promote positive growth in the community.
There are a few reasons I keep returning to the New York Comic Con panel for self-described party game for horrible people Cards Against Humanity. Full disclosure, I’ve done work for them in the past and I’m friends with the folks there. But also, the panels are consistently entertaining and unpredictable. Last year I got bread in my hair. Outside of releasing new themed cards packs for topics like “Mass Effect” and “Women’s Health,” Cards Against Humanity doesn’t change that much from year to year.
Capcom doesn’t exactly have a ton of big new games on the horizon, outside of Monster Hunter World aka the First Playable Monster Hunter. But at New York Comic Con the publisher proved adept at extending the life of its older games in exciting new ways. New updates for Street Fighter and Marvel vs Capcom! New content for Resident Evil VII and Dead Rising 4! HD remaster of Okami!
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".
