LAST NIGHT, THE entire Leinster rugby team visited the Nightmare Realm in Dublin’s RDS. There are photos. And they are gas. This wouldn’t be for him now. He thought they were going to the pub. So many hands clasping at nothing. It’s going to be alright boys. That’s right Rob. Style it out. Don’t think we haven’t noticed you’re wearing shorts in October. Honestly, this is very relatable. He’s staring off into the corner there – what did he see? Somebody, ask him. “Oh you got me, very scary.
YOU DON’T EXPECT to hear a TD quoting The Simpsons in the Dáil, much less when talking about a serious subject like the Budget. But that’s exactly what Eamon Ryan did. In his Budget statement yesterday, the Green Party leader used a rather unusual word to express his dissatisfaction with the whole thing. I asked a colleague earlier this morning and he said it was “cromulent”. I asked what that meant and he said it does not mean anything. That is the sense from this budget.
IF YOUâ€™VE HEARD of Rick and Morty, the cult cartoon about a mad scientist who goes on adventures with his long-suffering grandson, you might know that fans of the show are extremely passionate about it. In an episode from the recent third season, Rick mentions his love of Szechuan Teriyaki Dipping Sauce, a limited edition sauce McDonaldâ€™s brought out in 1998 to promote the film Mulan.
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".
