Long before Frankenstein got to work, Jewish folklore gave us the Golem – a clay creature brought to life by magic. Golem can only obey every demand, whether made for good or ill. Innovative theatre company 1927 gives the legend a modern twist in this satire on what happens when we let technology overwhelm us. From a handful of Golems made in a back room their potential gets snapped up by big business and the Golem becomes a mass-produced, must-have commodity. The show is a comedy.
Having staged it in 1981, the Royal Court Theatre in 2006 numbered Touched among the 50 plays that represented its best ‘state of the nation’ work. Set in working-class Nottingham in 1945, during the bittersweet days of the half-peace after the end of the war in Europe, but while British troops still fought in the Far East, Stephen Lowe’s play characterises the lives of a group of women who have imagined a future for themselves and society while their men are absent.
The Panthers – promoted after losing to Hectorville in last season’s division five decider – have dropped their opening two games of the new Adelaide Footy League season. Smithfield matched Edwardstown after quarter-time in the opening round before falling just short of a maiden win against Hectorville in round two. Led by Daniel Cook and Ian Bellman, the Panthers will be hoping to take down Gepps Cross, which finished the opening fortnight of the season with a win and defeat.
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".
