New Year’s Resolution: attend more arts shows. It’s an easy one to check off this January, with some great productions coming to the stage. Black Boys and Topdog/Underdog examine overlooked facets of Black experience, while Hot Brown Honey, Ruined and SHIT do similar things for women. Mufti-disciplinary PuSh Festival is back as well, and we’ve picked a few eyebrow-raising shows as a starting point.
Recently opened SOJI Gifts and Collectibles is a Mount Pleasant destination for a variety of geek chic goods, including designer toys, collectibles, unique gifts, apparel and more. But unlike the cluttered comic book and geek stores that traditionally come to mind, the just-off Main Street shop has plenty of breathing space between exquisitely designed samurai Storm Trooper figurines and Pusheen The Cat plush toys.
A fully-scripted parody show, Mad Max: Yellow Brick Road will run from December 13 to 16 at the theatre inside Havana Restaurant on Commercial Drive. From local improv group Instant Theatre Company, the show takes the post-apocalyptic setting of the blockbuster feature film and drops it into the world of Oz. There will be an epic rap battle between Glinda and the Wicked Witch— featuring feats of verbal dexterity, creative rhyme schemes, and brutal burns.
The restaurant's slogan is "Taitung's best oyster noodles," and they aren't playing. Generous servings of oysters, pork intestines, bamboo shoots, carrots in a savoury, thick broth... I'm in love 😍 http://ift.tt/2rtCK4Bhttps://t.co/7ycczqKB6t
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".
