Vlogger Michael Smith-Grant first became interested in K-pop after watching KARA’s “Break It” video. He became a fan fan a couple of years later when he discovered more hip-hop leaning groups like B.A.P., a band which, Smith-Grant emphasizes, came before the wildly popular BTS. Smith-Grant got a lot of shit originally for liking a genre that wasn’t authentically hip-hop and also wasn’t in English, he says.
Hollywood has [most] of the money in the world, but apparently not enough to pay their actors and actresses equally. Remember last week when everyone was up in arms about the fact that Michelle Williams was paid less than one percent of what Mark Wahlberg earned for re-shooting All the Money in the World? That was infuriating, right? Well, turns out, the very large pay gap was a problem during regular shooting, as well.
In case you weren’t aware, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child this week. Now, said child has a name: Chicago West. Or, in certain circles, Chi (pronounced as “shy”). Kim shared the news on her website with a couple of other details, including Chicago’s time of birth (12:47am) and weight (7 pounds, 6 ounces). Kanye was raised in Chicago. Kanye loves Chicago more than any other city in the world.
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".
