Brookfest is one of Stony Brook's oldest traditions and this year, USG decided to bring international pop band DNCE to campus. I had the opportunity to speak with band member Jinjoo Lee just days before their Stony Brook gig. One thing that JinJoo emphasises is how important it is for their fans to be themselves. DNCE's "look" was not a result of managers and record executives having a powwow about what would sell records, but rather something that came organically.
For years many people have been arguing that a person's weight doesn't define their beauty. I happen to agree with that. Just because someone isn't a size O, 6, or 10 doesn't mean that they aren't beautiful or aren't worthy of being a model. However, Yahoo! News has a different view. Yahoo! News recently published an article regarding girls' weight and the relationship that has to how many parents raise them entitled: Girls With Single Parents Twice as Likely to Be Obese.
For 50 years, the United Performing Arts Fund has kept the curtains up at performing arts groups throughout the Milwaukee area. Like any successful entrepreneurial effort, a small group of civic leaders created UPAF in 1967 to support the burgeoning performing arts scene that would soon explode with the opening of The Performing Arts Center (now called The Marcus Center for the Performing Arts).
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".
