This is what Christmas is all about! The beloved holiday cartoon “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will come to life on stage for the 10th year in a row this weekend, with four performances at Littlefield in Gowanus on Dec. 16 and 17. The producer of the show, who also plays Charlie Brown, said that acting out the 1965 animated holiday classic has become a special annual tradition for the cast and crew.
Coney Islanders and other Brooklynites braved the first snow of the season to visit the first weekend of the Coney Island Winter Wonderland charity event at the Coney Island Museum. The second-annual event became even bigger this year, with a holiday market, a visit from Santa, a yo-yo performance, and a holiday laser light show, according to the organizer who came up with the idea.
Ridgites turned out to the annual Shore Road Gazebo Christmas tree lighting on Nov. 30 for a taste of holiday cheer. One Ridge father who attended the event for the first time this year with his 6-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter said that his kids enjoyed the festivities, which also featured hot chocolate and a visit from Santa Claus himself. “It was festive, and the kids enjoyed it,” said Kai Yan of his children, Caiden and Emilie.
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".
