Thanks to a generous invitation from the good people at FOX we recently had the opportunity to interview host Neil deGrasse Tyson and writer/executive producer Ann Druyan about the upcoming series COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey. It was a fascinating interview that really shed a lot of light on how the show came about and what viewers can expect to see. The show continues the fascinating voyage into the world of science that Carl Sagan began over 30 years ago.
Can you believe it’s been nearly four years since Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey premiered on Fox and NatGeo? It was a hit with both viewers and critics, having been seen by over 135 million pairs of eyeballs worldwide. I’m not at all surprised it was given a second season, but I definitely didn’t think it would take this long. And the wait is going to be even longer with the premiere date for season 2, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, tentatively set for Spring 2019.
The first full trailer for Netflix’s upcoming original series, Altered Carbon, is finally online and I think it was worth the wait. The show definitely looks polished and there seems to be the promise of much action, mainly in the form of violence. But this is a detective story about people who can change bodies like we change pants (if you wear pants) and death is only a temporary setback.
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".
