“I wished I could meet you one day in Cavafy’s Alexandria. But that Alexandria is no more, Vanished in the dust of history…” Ahmed Morsi. A Prelude to Meeting Niffari, 1997. Ahmed Morsi’s poetry fills a weighty 1000-page tome that sits upon his daughter’s coffee table in her Cairo home, where his brightly painted canvases fill almost every wall. “He only ever uses the language of poetry to explore one subject,” Sherine Morsi explained, as I asked her to talk me through the contents of the poems.
From a distance, Athier Mousawi’s paintings could be seen simply as a visual treat of abstract form and colour, which attract a viewer simply because of the activity on the canvas. But they go much deeper than that. The bright palette he chooses belies the serious questioning going on within the many layers of his work. Mousawi is Iraqi and his family left the country before the start of the first Gulf War in the 1980s.
(CNN) - Pintada exquisitamente con una piel tersa como la porcelana y vestida de rojo, con los hombros ligeramente ladeados, La Belle Ferroniere, de Leonardo da Vinci, tiene esa clase de mirada que ha hecho de su creador uno de los artistas más celebrados de la historia. A pesar de todo, siempre la superó su hermana mucho más famosa: la Mona Lisa. Pero ahora, la dama de rojo ha salido del anonimato.
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".
