LOS ANGELES — When you're the star of The Bachelor, it's natural that single women will fight over you. That was literally the case for serial dater Arie Luyendyk Jr., who in this season's third episode of ABC's long-running dating franchise (Monday, 8 ET/PT) pairs up women to wrestle, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling-style. USA TODAY went on location, at a theater in September, to see the young reality contestants practice hair-pulling, crotch-kicking and body-slamming. And cry in a stairwell.
Dolores O'Riordan, known for her raw voice on songs by The Cranberries including Zombie and Linger, has died suddenly at age 46. The lead singer of the Irish band died Monday in London, where she had gone for a short recording session, publicist Lindsey Holmes told USA TODAY. Holmes said the singer's family is "devastated" by the news. Her cause of death wasn't immediately available.
Leah Remini is defending director Paul Haggis, who has been accused of sexual misconduct. In an open letter, co-signed by Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath co-host Mike Rinder and posted to Rinder's website, they maintain that Haggis is likely not guilty, and that the anonymous accusations made about him probably have to do with the fact that the Oscar-nominated filmmaker once was a member of the Church of Scientology.
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".
