Unlucky, sure - particularly the day he just happened to stand right next to where one of the Boston Marathon terrorists planted a bomb. It blew off both his legs at the knee. Stubborn? Yeah, maybe. He fought his way through a long, touch-and-go operation. He went to physical therapy, and made himself learn to walk again on prostheses. But "hero"? He didn't see how it applied. And the more he heard that word, the more he stopped listening. To everyone.
Kirsten Dunst has said that making "Woodshock" is the hardest thing she ever did, and from someone who also did "Elizabethtown," "Spider-Man 3" and a Lars Von Trier movie, that counts for something. But you know what's even harder? The sort of insufferably pretentious bore one rarely meets outside of film-critic parties, "Woodshock" is the story of Theresa, a pale blond woman who lives in the picturesque Northwest house where her ailing mother just died. Actually, it was an assisted suicide.
The English public, it seems, treat their reigning monarchs somewhat like old, slightly out-of-fashion buildings. They mock their antiquated good taste. They notice every new chip. And then they're shocked by the horrible hole they leave behind when they disappear. No one is perhaps more out-of-fashion than Queen Victoria, a ruler who gave her name to an entire age of guiltless imperialism, stifling manners and overstuffed furniture.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
