Here is a sampling of the family-friendly events happening in the Triangle this weekend. ▪ On Nov. 18, the American Indian Heritage Celebration marks National American Indian Heritage Month at the N.C. Museum of History and neighboring Bicentennial Plaza. The celebration lasts from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Raleigh museum. Attendees should be sure to witness the Grand Entry at noon, during which there will be a roll call of all the participating tribes.
Next time you go to Target or JC Penney at North Hills, you might find yourself facing a work of art. An installation opened Oct. 18 at the development’s parking deck, where it will remain on display for the next three to five years. The “Teens, Inspired” exhibit features 44 works by 27 local teenage artists that have been enlarged and printed on durable vinyl.
Darryl McDaniels has lived his life like a comic book superhero. Consider this: The world knows him as DMC, one of the most influential MCs in hip-hop history and co-founder of the iconic hip-hop group Run-DMC. Yet behind the glasses, the chain and the hat was a mild-mannered straight-A Catholic school kid whose first love was comic books. Putting on the DMC outfit emboldened McDaniels, giving a naturally shy nerd the confidence to rock the mic.
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".
