A new Vancouver theatre company is making its debut this weekend. The Midtwenties Theatre Society's production of This is Our Youth is a play by screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan, who won an Oscar for the film Manchester by the Sea. The show follows the stories of three privileged youth in Reagan-era New York. It premiered off-Broadway in 1996, which is around the same time its current crew was born, but the themes of the play were immediately relatable for director Beau Han Bridge.
While many businesses have shut down in Williams Lake, one small coffee shop is still going strong. Sue Lachance, owner of New World Coffee and Tea House, says with plenty of mouths still to feed, she wants to be the last to leave. "At the beginning, I think people weren't really sure whether we were open or not, because so many businesses have had to close due to lack of staff," she said. "But as they've realized we're open, we've been pretty much inundated."
Musician, activist and author Billy Bragg is unearthing a blind spot in the U.K.'s musical history with his new book, 'Roots, Radicals, and Rockers', about the genre of music called skiffle. "It's basically, in absolutely simplistic terms, you could say it's British school boys playing Leadbelly's repertoire on acoustic guitars in 1956-57," Bragg said to The Early Edition host Stephen Quinn.
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".
