The majority of the time, it is difficult to identify with the lives of the members of the royal family —their every move is publicised , they have rules for almost everything and they wear tiaras unironically . And today, we've been provided with one of those moments, thanks to Mike Tindall, the husband of the Queen's granddaughter Zara Tindall. However, every now and then a snippet of news is divulged that makes you feel like maybe, just maybe, the royal family is just like your own.
"Oprah 2020" is a phrase that has been in the media a lot recently. Since the iconic entrepreneur made her unbelievably empowering speech at the Golden Globes the push for her to run for President has become more prevalent than ever. And while we've heard comments from Oprah's partner Stedman, and her best friend Gayle, we had yet to hear a direct confirmation of political aspirations from the woman herself… that is, until now.
The Hollywood Reporter has announced today that Casey Affleck will not be presenting an award at this year's Oscars, even though, given his Best Actor win last year, it would be customary for him to do so. Traditionally, the Best Actor recipient from the previous year is given the role of presenting the award for Best Actress in the current year, and vice versa. Many will remember that last year, Affleck was presented his Best Actor award by Brie Larson (who famously refused to clap for the star).
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".
