Went to the movie theater and liked, but didn’t love Lady Bird … and for this I blame Netflix. I call it: The Netflix Effect. So, Lady Bird is really good. Should have loved it. It got a 99 percent from Rotten Tomatoes and The New York Times raved, saying the director (Greta Gerwig) managed to “infuse one of the most convention-bound, rose-colored genres in American cinema with freshness and surprise.”I enjoy freshness and surprise.
I didn’t watch my new-hometown Ohio State Buckeyes v. USC in the Cotton Bowl. Or OK v. GA, or the Tigers v. the Tide. Not even gonna watch the Eagles, my beloved, original-hometown Iggles, who I’ve rooted for since I was 6, play in the NFL playoffs. Not even if they make it to the Super Bowl for only the second time in my life. Why am I giving up football? Nope, has nothing to do with the National Anthem protests. I’m with the players.
The Texas-based owners of the Fifth Third Center have relinquished control of the prominent Capitol Square skyscraper, which could soon be sold. The mortgage for the building owned by Behringer Harvard "has been sent to special servicing due to imminent default," said Sean Barrie, a research analyst for Trepp LLC, a New York company that provides commercial real-estate information and analytics.
Check out my new More Stuff blog: http://morestuff.blog. It's the new, modern and even-funnier version of the More Stuff column I did for years - and years ago - in a newspaper. Someone out there must remember it, right?
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".
