Have you seen Lady Bird? It’s Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, and it’s an absolute masterpiece…Set in Gerwig’s real-life hometown of Sacramento in 2002, the coming-of-age story follows Catholic high-school senior Christine “Lady Bird” (played by Saoirse Ronan), who yearns for independence. The quick scenes reflect the consuming adolescent emotions of elation, heartache and humiliation. And, oh my goodness, does it get it right.
What are you up to this weekend? Alex is taking the boys to test drive a Tesla tonight. It’s basically their childhood dream come true! And I’ll be brainstorming our Thanksgiving menu — what’s on yours? One thing I’ve decided so far is that we’ll have roast potatoes versus mashed. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…I just got this cheery coat and am loving it. The Sorta Marathon — just like a real marathon, but only .2 miles long — made me laugh.
Dark and stormy nights have never been more exciting thanks to fall TV. One genre that’s especially great? Scary scripted dramas. The category has finally hit its stride, with current series featuring some of the best writing and cinematography on TV in decades. Here are the five shows keeping me on the edge of my seat, even after Halloween…Stranger Things (2016 —). The best of early 80’s fashion, a sci-fi storyline, Eggo waffles, classic movie nods, a synth-heavy soundtrack, Winona Ryder.
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".
