Soap Opera Digest: When you made the change in head writers back in the beginning of the year, what were you looking for and how has your new head writer, Ron Carlivati, achieved that? Ken Corday: Oh, I think he’s achieved it in every way, shape and form. I was looking for family that was familiar, they’re back. I was looking for stories that made sense and were entertaining in the tradition of DAYS and what we’ve done in the past, and he’s done that.
Soap Opera Digest: Did you have any trepidation about holding both the head writer and executive producer positions at the soap? Mal Young: Ever since I’ve taken it on, I’ve started to get trepidation because of people saying to me, “What are you thinking?” I’m thinking to myself, “Oh, my God, am I overconfident here?” In the [United Kingdom], I’ve done this so many times, being a showrunner, so it just felt like the next natural progression in what I do.
SINGLE MOM A GO GO, the new video podcast from Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH) debuted on Monday night with DAYS's Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) as Stafford's first guest. "I'm a huge fan of the show COMEDIANS IN CARS GETTING COFFEE on Crackle, and I'm addicted to it," says Stafford of how she got the idea for her new endeavor.
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".
