LAKEWOOD — In basements, bedrooms and home offices, in cluttered drawers and neat display cases, the things we collect are all around us. Whether it’s vintage postcards, baseball caps or vinyl records, antique flutes, model trains or video-game memorabilia, each has a story to tell. The Lakewood Heritage Center, a collector of 20th-century artifacts, itself, is celebrating the stories of local collectors and the things they treasure in a free exhibit through Aug. 30. Here’s a look at three of them.
Shoppers at the Tattered Cover Book Store’s four Denver area shops probably won’t notice much of a difference, but this weekend marks an important moment in the business’ 46-year history. Len Vlahos and Kristen Gilligan officially acquire a controlling interest in the bookstore Saturday as longtime owner Joyce Meskis retires, marking the end of a two-year ownership transition. “The transition has been so good and so fluid that it’s a little anticlimactic,” said Vlahos, the bookstore’s CEO.
When Joyce Meskis took over the Tattered Cover Book Store in 1974, it was a struggling shop in Denver’s Cherry Creek North neighborhood. Today, it’s a Denver institution, with four retail stores in the metro area, three licensed locations at Denver International Airport and an influence that extends far beyond its extra-tall shelves.
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".
