"The audacity of it." That's Jonathan Kamholtz's first reaction to the first lines of "Hamlet." Or as it appears on the page he is reading now in the lower level of Union Terminal, "The Tragedie of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmarke." So reads the first line, spoken by Bernardo, in "Hamlet" in the First Folio, the prized collection published in 1623 that preserved Shakespeare's works. One of only 233 copies is now on display in an exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
It's easy to forget they don't belong here. Just look at how confidently these little lizards patrol our gardens. How boldly they bask on rock walls, how easily they scurry across our sidewalks in these summer months. They even watch us as we watch them. They live in the light. Brazenly. Too comfortable to be colonists, right? Yet, they are and always will be just that. In the decades since they settled here, millions – yes, millions – of these lizards have chased the sun all over Cincinnati.
The work itself isn't exactly hard to spot. Construction equipment buzzes on the plaza. Cranes hover above. The results of all that effort at Union Terminal, however, won't all be as obvious. That's because the restoration project focuses on replacing and repairing deteriorating parts of the Art Deco icon. Things like the heating and air conditioning. The roof, too. But that doesn't mean there aren't already noticeable improvements at the home of the Cincinnati Museum Center.
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".
