Binghamton natives Howey Mitsakos (illustrator) and Giordi DeAngelo (author) are raising funds online for their first book, “Would You Love Me.”“Would You Love Me” is a career book for children that removes gender stereotypes. It took Mitsakos and DeAngelo over a year to develop, with help from local teachers, children’s psychiatrists and counselors, and family and friends. DeAngelo said: “The idea for our book was sparked after catching Emma Watson’s U.N. speech.
Orchestras around the U.S. — in cities both large and small — are facing a similar problem: The audience for classical music is aging, and fewer young listeners are taking up the cause. The situation is complicated. Sure, some of it stems from changing tastes or societal shifts, but cutbacks in arts education don’t help either. If children aren’t exposed to Beethoven or Mozart, how are they expected to appreciate the music as adults?
‘Futurist’ will use modern tech to create old-time wonder at Feb. 22 show at ForumIn the 21st century, where all forms of media are digitized, laden with CGI and fed directly into eyeballs around the world, can a live magic show still amaze audiences? Adam Trent thinks so — and he’s on a mission to prove it. The 32-year-old native of Boulder, Colorado, starred on Broadway in “The Illusionists” and performs about 300 headlining shows a year.
@brinatello@time_soulmates@epiccrescendo I have to admit that I'm disappointed that any DW fan would single out Capaldi's Doctor as being a "dick." Hopefully it was just a poorly phrased question or that she got too comfortable and forgot who she was talking to.
@brinatello@time_soulmates@epiccrescendo By his own admission, the Doctor is not himself in "Hell Bent." He's spent millions of years trying to escape from the confession dial and is trying to save Clara at all costs. That leads a man to desperate decisions. At least he checked that the general wouldn't be dead-dead.
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".
