Here we are, midway through 2017, and we’re already up to our Facebook feeds in 50th anniversary observances. Just this month alone, two epochal musical events reached the half-century mark: the release of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and the Monterey International Pop Festival, which served as the coming-out party for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Janis Joplin, as well as ushering in the age of the rock-music festival.
When Beth Tinnon first arrived on the Atlantic City lounge scene 16 years ago, she found a Vegas-like atmosphere. "There were a lot more lounges with full, seven-days-a-week entertainment. But it was a different style of entertaining in the early part of the 2000s," says the singer-songwriter who has won the Best Casino Lounge Act in Atlantic City award for seven out of nine years.
As a veteran musical theater performer whose Broadway credits include “Legally Blonde” and “Cabaret”—and as the current president of Actors Equity, the union that represents theatrical performers--Kate Shindle probably didn’t need the current touring production of the Tony Award-winning musical, “Fun Home,” to get a regular paycheck.
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".
