Janelle and Martin’s lives are filled with turmoil. So they decide to simplify. They’ll spend the summer in a cottage in the woods. But they soon learn that you can’t outrun stress. Janelle is still feeling the emotional impact of a recent trauma. And Martin still can’t shake the bitterness of not being the hot young programmer. Looming over everything is that, at 40, their hopes of having a child are slipping away with each successive day. Country life isn’t what they imagined, either.
It’s been unusually quiet on the theater front lately. But that happens nearly every January. Theaters take a little time to gear up after the holidays. And now, they’re all ready to go. In the course of two weeks, shows will be opening left and right. Add community and university theaters to the mix and it’s a theater-lovers delight. Or dilemma, if you actually hope to see them all. But rather than be immobilized by our good fortune, let’s make a plan.
Caroline Stine comes from a family of overachievers. Her mother spent 16 years as a member of the Kentucky legislature, the last few as the Senate’s president pro tem. In August, her father retired as the chief circuit judge of Kentucky’s 17th Judicial Circuit. But unlike her parents, she decided not to pursue a career in the law or the legislature. Instead, she chose one decidedly more chancy – producing theater. She’s the director of theater at Notre Dame Academy in Park Hills.
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".
