MaryLeigh Roohan, indie singer-songwriter and road warrior, will return to Caffe Lena on June 25. The Saratoga Springs native hasn’t played a solo show in her hometown in more than two years, and she’s raring to go. The show at Lena’s will include some new songs written in collaboration with Jen Trani, a full band recreation of Living Alone (her last EP, which was raw, powerful, and fueled by terrific writing), and an exclusive giveaway for all members of the audience.
Daphne du Maurier’s short story “The Birds” was published in 1952; Alfred Hitchcock was fascinated enough by it to develop it into his 1963 movie The Birds, and Conor McPherson adapted it into a play in 2009 – yet other than the plot device of birds coming to attack, these three versions have very little in common. Such is the power of a good idea; it can spin off into many forms and still hold you in its grasp.
“This is Richard Lovrich. I’m going to shoot you.” It was amidst the scurry and high emotion of my last day at my previous job that I was first introduced to Richard Lovrich. It’s almost embarrassing to admit that, until he left a message in his deep, weathered voice on that unseasonably warm fall day,I had no idea who Richard Lovrich was.
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".
