The Obamas may no longer inhabit the White House, but they are still wishing Americans everywhere a happy Thanksgiving “full of joy and gratitude.” Former President Barack Obama tweeted the greetings Thursday morning with a picture of himself with Michelle, Malia and Sasha in a warm family embrace with smiles all around. It’s an all-grown-up version of a photograph Obama posted for Thanksgiving five years ago, about two weeks after he was elected for a second term.
Danny Masterson’s publicist of nearly 20 years, Jenni Weinman, suggested that her client couldn’t have raped Chrissie Bixler because the two were in a relationship when he allegedly assaulted an unconscious Bixler at least twice. Bixler is one of four women who have accused the actor of raping them in the early aughts.
Even before Thanksgiving dinners are cleared off the table, stores and online retailers are screaming for consumers’ attention with Black Friday sales and deals. Over the years, the start time for the beginning of the hectic holiday shopping season has inched up. You've barely digested your food before it's time to hit the mall. About 164 million people (that’s 69 percent of the country’s population) plan to shop over the long Thanksgiving weekend, according to the National Retail Federation.
The Great Thanksgiving Side Dish Debate of 2017 has been raging in the culture team row and Slack channel. And it's all because of @TimMarcin a few cubicles down. The crescent rolls were particularly controversial. https://t.co/EkXq17kYgK
“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long. Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years," his family said in a statement. https://t.co/k5z9Zr7gRa
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".
