The narrative of Finding Nemo is well-worn: a male clownfish, driven to over-protective parenting by bereavement, travels across the ocean in search ofÂ his only son, Nemo. Along the way, he goes on a transformative journey that allows him to learn more about himself and his relationship with his son. There is also an excellent song about the zones of the open sea, and some vegetarian sharks.
In total, he estimates that there are around 180-200 plants being planted and removed on stage during each show - mostly in a swift 210-second scene change. The plants are arguably hardy types: grasses, Skimmia japonica, some less-satisfied-looking real roses, the odd immaculate fake one. But it’s a remarkable thing to witness nonetheless, as the 10-strong cast grab armfuls of pot plants and immerse them in real soil in a rapid horticultural factory line.
The speculation began on Wednesday morning. Two days before the John Lewis Christmas advertisement was released on to YouTube and into the hearts of a public filled with the vague dread of November, people were wondering what the soundtrack would be – and with increasing ridicule. Jessie Ware covering 2003 Pop Idol victor Michelle McManus? Laura Mvula taking on Yazoo? They were partially correct: this year’s heartstring-plucker is a cover by a Mercury Prize-nominated (and -winning!) act.
In 30 minutes I'm going to log out of Twitter for a week and go cactus hunting in California while listening to Laura Marling's Short Movie extremely loudly in an attempt to forget that the patriarchy exists.
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".
