Joe Brown MBE may be renowned as one of the original pioneers of high-octane rock and roll, but now he’s going back to basics on his latest tour as ‘Just Joe’. Despite racking up over 50 years in the business, at first he wasn’t convinced that carrying the whole show by himself would work. But it’s clear the 76-year-old doesn’t intend to slow down anytime soon.
The producers of Legally Blonde the Musical are on the hunt for a lovable Potteries dog to star in the show when it comes to the Regent Theatre in March. The role of Bruiser, the Chihuahua owned by lead character and law student Elle Woods, has already been cast. But auditions will he held next month to find a ‘Rufus’.
The iconic Potters ‘Arf is back for the fourteenth year this June. Last year’s 13.1 mile challenge saw 2,000 people take part – and thousands of others lining the route cheering participants on. The race features infamous inclines like Anchor Road and Milton Road’s cruel ‘Heartbreak Hill’ at mile 12. This year it will be taking place on Sunday, June 10. Entries are opening this Saturday (January 13) with an official launch event at the Victoria Hall in Hanley.
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".
