The story of slavery is embedded in the story of Albany. But it isn't always told — not the way stories of the Dutch traders in Fort Orange are told, of the old patroons and their sprawling families who settled and thrived in the bustling northern tangle of New Netherland. Yet it's there. They enslaved people. The commerce of New Netherland benefited from the forced migration of millions in the global slave trade.
Knives plunge. Faces peel. Pyrotechnics erupt. But no one gets hurt in "The Hollywood Special Effects Show," a touring theatrical extravaganza of things that go bam, bump, bang-bang, kaboom, crash and sppllttttttt. "We've been doing the show for a long time, and never had any incidents," assures tour producer Alex Jarrett. No injuries, no accidents. Though, true, people are dismembered on a regular basis. "We do cut someone's arm off from the audience," he says. "But we do reattach it."
The Albany Symphony dropped details of its 2018-2019 season on Wednesday evening, and the tally was five world premieres, six soloists, one guest conductor and a performance of Benjamin Britten’s monumental “War Requiem” with Albany Pro Music at Proctors. Also coming: a memorial concert for Heinrich Medicus, the nuclear physicist and longtime Albany Symphony benefactor who died last February and left $7 million to the orchestra’s endowment.
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".
