According to Emilio Castillo, tenor sax player and founding member of Tower of Power, the band enters the “Oakland Zone” when it’s “clicking on all 10 cylinders.” That’s when the fans start jumping up out of their seats and grooving to one of the longest-running and most cherished acts in American music. You can be sure that as soon as the band takes the stage at the Granada on Saturday, September 23, the Oakland Zone will be closer than Goleta, and funkier.
Amir would seem to have everything — a high-paying job at a prestigious New York law firm, a beautiful apartment on the Upper East Side, and a talented spouse whose career as an artist is beginning to take off. But the route to his perch atop the gilded ladder of Manhattan success has come at a price. Born in Pakistan and raised a Muslim, Amir has never completely reconciled his background with his present identity.
While it may not be everyone’s first thought when considering how to stage an effective production of Shakespeare’s King Lear, the double-cast version that Irwin Appel has created for UCSB’s Naked Shakes program turns out to be a great solution. With professional actor Brian Harwell in the lead role and two separate ensembles of UCSB undergrads in the other parts, this 90-minute Lear is as powerful as it is compact, and consistently revelatory.
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".
