The Philadelphia area was home to a historic free black community whose local roots predate the Revolutionary War, and a new documentary is finally giving us a glimpse of its descendants. You can catch the premiere of The Montiers: An American Story on Wednesday, March 14, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, along with an extraordinary pair of portraits, and a panel of special guests that Philly art, history, and genealogy enthusiasts will not want to miss.
We at BSR believe it's okay to shelter in place on Valentine’s Day with your lover(s), your friends, yourself, or your cats. But we’re also saying that once the Super Bowl parade ends and you realize you want to share love with someone besides the Eagles, you don’t need an expensive dinner reservation. Date-night options abound, even if some sound uncomfortable (we’re not judging; whatever gets you off is cool).
The Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) returns this year, running May 31 through June 10. The fest is full of premieres with guaranteed wow factor, including more than 50 performances by world-class artists hailing from places including France, Egypt, South Korea, and Sweden.
@MarkGoulston I appreciate this thread. I’ve been hospitalized for depression & know multiple people who have died by suicide. But we need to step back & re-examine our language, & STOP saying “commit suicide,” as if it’s a crime rather than the fatal symptom of an agonizing crisis.
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".
