Venus in Fur Written by David Ives, directed by Lara McGregor The Court Theatre, until November 11. There must be pain and pleasure in any play which manages to compress gender politics, identity, sadomasochism and eroticism into the brief space of 100 minutes. Hardly surprising that given the convolutions of the plot, there are moments in the Court Theatre's new production of Venus in Fur when everybody is understandably breathless.
The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans fought like worst enemies on the field Sunday, then the next day worked together like friendly allies. After a thrilling shootout, the Seahawks acquired left tackle Duane Brown from the Texans in exchange for future draft picks. Initially, the Seahawks agreed to send cornerback Jeremy Lane to the Texans. This plan fell through after Lane failed a physical for undisclosed reasons.
After the first two games of the season, the Seattle Seahawks performance has yielded mixed results. The good news is the defense is even better than expected. The bad news is the offensive line is worse than advertised. Fortunately, there are measures that may help to solve Seattle’s offensive problems. In addition to star quarterback Russell Wilson, Seattle already possesses some of the most talented receivers, tight ends and running backs in the game.
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".
