It’s not often that my love of the arts collides with my passion for pets, but Woodmere Art Museum is granting my wish this winter with Elizabeth Osborne: Animal Paintings and Watercolors. Running January 13 through June 24, the show offers a warm, colorful, evocative peek at our furry friends through the eyes of an important Philly artist.
I think we can say 2017 has been a year the likes of which many of us hope we never see again. If you want to usher in 2018 with a box (or two) of wine, some Netflix, and a pile of discounted Christmas candy with the two or three people you can still stand to have in your house, I am not judging. But if you want an event with Philly flavor and you won’t be finding yourself at the Crystal Tea Room or on a fancy boat, here are some ideas for the arts-and-culture crowd on New Year’s Eve 2017.
Just as the seasonal aisles at Acme and CVS are getting a little gap-toothed and ragged, there’s still time to check out three neighborhood-centric arts and craft bazaars, if your gift list isn’t complete (or if you want to find something nice for yourself, and after the past year, I’m pretty sure you deserve it). On December 16 and 17, the popular Punk Rock Flea Market is landing at the BOK building (1901 S. 9th Street; enter at Mifflin Street) from 10am-5pm.
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".
