A shooting at a Texas church Sunday that has left more than 20 people dead is prompting celebrities to call for gun control. Some messages were succinct: "#guncontrolnow," The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani posted on Twitter within an hour of news breaking. Others expressed a combination of outrage and resignation. "Where's the next mass shooting gonna be?" Parks and Recreation star Billy Eichner wrote. "Any guesses? Should we try to do anything we can to prevent it? No? Ok cool. Good luck out there!"
Actress Geena Davis, Frozen writer Jennifer Lee and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins were among the Hollywood heavyweights encouraging women to get behind the scenes and help shift the industry's direction at the annual Women in Entertainment summit in Los Angeles Thursday. "Sexism in Hollywood has been entrenched forever but I do think this is a watershed moment," Davis, who heads up an institute on gender in media, told CBC News.
This story contains some spoilers for Stranger Things, season two. New characters, crushes and relationships propel season two of Stranger Things but the sinister vibe and classic 80s references from the first season still loom large. "There are certain events that are a catalyst for the season, this jumping off point," said Joe Keery, who plays high schooler Steve Harrington on the show. "Each is kind of different for each character, but I think overall, it takes us to a darker, more raw place."
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".
