This week on "State of Wonder," live sessions with Sidewalk Chalk and the star-studded Filthy Friends, Rene Denfeld on how her work as a private investigator inspired her book, Artist Rep shakes up the theater season and more. A decision from the Oregon Supreme Court has saved Portland’s Arts Education and Access fund — better known as the Arts Tax — ruling that it is constitutional.
Limited edition prints are a wonderful thing in the art world. They make it so an artist can offer multiples of their work at a more affordable price, meaning more of us get the joy of owning them. But artists themselves rarely make the prints. They conceive of the work in collaboration with a printer, who then reproduces it. The world of fine art printers is small and unsung, and Oregon has been blessed with one of the best.
This week on "State of Wonder," we talk Twitter and Copland with George Takei, hear about the must-see shows at the Time-Based Art Festival, and celebrate James Baldwin with Stew and the Negro Problem. Author, writing teacher, and Iraq War veteran Sean Davis has been fighting wildland fires on and off for 20 years. The past two months have found him back on the firelines at the North Umpqua Complex, the Flounce Fire, the Falls Creek Fire and the Happy Dog Fire.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
