Elizabeth Flanagan wants to be a “kind-hearted Picasso.”An artist for more than 30 years, the San Anselmo resident has organized events that connect and help others. She’s highlighted local artists and their work at an annual art show, Art on the Lawn, and in 2008 started the Secret Santa Shoebox Community Project, a Marin charity whose volunteers fill shoeboxes with gifts for struggling families, homeless vets and seniors.
Sometimes, a great show only needs one performer. Marin Center and the Marin Cultural Association, in partnership with Brian Copeland, bring five of the Bay Area’s popular solo shows for the Best of San Francisco Solo Series. “We are celebrating diversity with this new series and we hope that people from all different walks of life will embrace it,” says Gabriella Calicchio, director of cultural services for Marin County, in a press release.
As a child, Morgan Giammona would often give eggs from his handful of chickens to his grandparents. That led the 22-year-old Point Reyes resident to hatch a thriving business. His Marshall-based company, Tomales Bay Pastures, sells its pasture-raised eggs to West Marin restaurants, Sausalito’s Driver’s Market, Inverness Park Market and at the Point Reyes farmers market. Giammona spends his days looking after a flock of 1,750 chickens. Q When did your interest in farming begin?
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".
