The Daily Herald has interviewed a handful of Utah locals while they’re busy competing on Fox’s “American Idol” or NBC’s “The Voice.” Having these musicians truly open up about the experience in real time, though, is rare: They’re under contract — usually with a publicist keeping close watch — the episodes are in full swing and they’re trying not to hurt their chances.But what about after the fact? As it turns out, sometimes they’ll be pretty candid.Case in point: Jenn Blosil.
I, for one, am quite glad Rooney has decided to make its return.The California band, which plays Salt Lake City’s The Urban Lounge on Saturday, has been back in the saddle recently after a six-year hiatus. Rooney holds an important place in my own musical history. You see, the band opened the first big-time concert I ever attended.
So, there’s a lot of hype going around about “The Big Sick.” The film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and recently got a wide national release, has become one of the most buzzed about movies of 2017. I’m happy to report that yes, you should probably go see it.Does “The Big Sick” live up to all the hype? Let me get this out of the way early: No. But it’s not for a lack of charm.
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".
