From 1956 to 1968, Jim Peppler worked for the Southern Courier, a nonprofit weekly Civil Rights newspaper serving Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia. During that time, he shot thousands of images, which are now part Jim Peppler Collection at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. On January 13, Peppler, now living in the Hudson Valley, will be donating a series of his Civil Rights photos to the permanent collection of the A. J. Williams-Myers African Roots Library in Kingston.
"Just take a risk!" says artist Joan Phares, explaining the philosophy of BAU, the Beacon Artist Union. Artist cooperatives have a reputation for celebrating mediocrity, but BAU is different. Members encourage one another to experiment with unfamiliar artforms. Twice a year, the gallery presents group shows, to which all the artists contribute new work. Offering assignments, inspiring risk, BAU is like a school without teachers.
Diners will find fresh ingredients and from-scratch dishes at Silvia, which opened recently in one of Tinker Street's most infamous buildings. "The building was built at the turn of the century, and amazingly not too much is known about its use at that time," says Silvia co-owner Betty Choi. [Read our profile on Betty Choi's house renovation.] "Local folks who come in like to remember its former uses—an ice cream shop which goes back to the '50s, and a hardware store at some point."
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".
