Sky Dylan-Robbins Founder, The Video Consortium As short-form video becomes a more and more popular means of telling stories, Dylan-Robbins--who works on NBC's short documentary unit--noticed something was missing: a community for video journalists to share ideas, learn new skills and support each other. So in 2015, she founded the Video Consortium to do just that.
Writing about Earl Sweatshirt’s début album, Doris , out this week, Sasha Frere-Jones notes that “the ferocity is all in the words, delivered in Earl’s even, burred voice, which rarely cracks a monotone.” The same held true when we recently sat down with the nineteen-year-old m.c., who was profiled in the magazine two years ago and is one of the more popular members of the Los Angeles-based hip-hop group Odd Future.
In this week’s issue, Deborah Friedell delves into the tangled origins of Superman. Jerome Siegel and Joe Shuster were only in high school, during the Depression, when they created the superhero. Ever since, the Man of Steel has been transformed and re-imagined in radio, comics, books, art, and movies. Here, we trace how depictions of Superman’s ability to fly have changed over time:
“The people you are reporting the abuse to are the abusers.” Another horrifying tale of sexual abuse, part two of many tk in the restaurant industry. And how horrendously disappointing: I loved the Spotted Pig. https://t.co/wHazqQeqUW
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".
