In the return episode of the Substandard (subscribe, tell your friends, leave a review! ), we discuss vigilante films and the awfulness of the 1970s. Sonny heaps praise on the Death Wish reboot (another reviewer liked it too). JVL takes us back to the original starring Charles Bronson and reminds us just how bad were the 1970s, which is what the first movie tapped into: panic and a sense of helplessness.
In this latest episode of the Substandard (subscribe, leave a review! ), we discuss the sci-fi-horror-drama Annihilation. Sonny gives the big boy review, another reviewer was left angry and confused, and JVL thinks Natalie Portman's better acting days are behind her. Yes, we do get into the Portman oeuvre. No, no one mentioned Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. Meanwhile, I relate my Xbox exploits, much to the amusement of my cohosts.
John Gizzi was running late to yesterday's White House press briefing. In fact, a camera briefly captured the Newsmax White House correspondent squeezing into a row of seats while Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was fielding questions. But almost as soon as Gizzi sat down, he raised his hand, and Sanders immediately went to him. "That was such good timing," quipped Anita Kumar of McClatchy Newspapers as the room broke into laughter. "He's closer today," said Sanders.
@StephenWhite11 For the record, I always thought it'd make a great sequel: She goes out of business. He goes out of business. They run a used book store while 20 yr old son dates a girl using dating app. Her dad is online book CEO and played by Bill Pullman.
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".
