Julia Schenck, a 34-year-old mother of two in Long Island, New York, has a commute that is short but not entirely painless. After she drops off her six- and eight-year-old at their elementary school, she treats herself to a coffee with a lot of cream and a lot of sugar at Burger King, then makes the 10-minute drive down a busy strip of parkway toward work.
Susan Dominus recently wrote for the magazine about dieting in France, a mysterious case of twitching teens and the woman who took the fall for JPMorgan Chase. I couldn’t bring myself to read Benjamin Anastas’s “Too Good To Be True,” a memoir about a New York author’s descent into debt and destruction (too harrowing for this writer); but the reviews of his writing were so good, I downloaded his first novel, “An Underachiever’s Diary,” and have been loving pretty much every word.
You’ve been on “The Daily Show” since 2014, but you became much more visible after hosting the White House correspondents’ dinner earlier this year. In that performance, you said that nobody else wanted this gig — why was that? It just became this hot potato that nobody wanted to touch. When I got the call, I was like: “We’re 19 days away. No one wanted this part.” Larry Wilmore did it last year, and they asked him four and a half months before the announcement came out.
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".
