Berlin-based artist Omer Fast wants us to look at history and apply it to the present. His new show at the Minneapolis Institute of Art explores life, death and politics through modern film and century-old photographs. Visitors familiar with Mia's photography gallery will be surprised to find it's been remodeled into something else. "What he or she sees first is a waiting room," said Fast. "And it's a kind of a diorama. It's a space that is a full-scale recreation of a doctor's waiting room."
For many communities in Minnesota, the grandest building in town was — and still is — the dance hall. It's where people gathered for big occasions, and to welcome entertainers. In a show opening in Minneapolis this week, Sod House Theater aims to celebrate that history and maybe get people on their feet. "Guess what's coming round the bend? That's right! It's the Hoopla Train, with Yardmaster Yip and his Polkestra!" calls one of the actors as the cast begins to sing.
Celeste Ng's new novel starts with a fire, which forces her characters, and readers, to consider incendiary questions about families and morality. It's a story in which the best of ideals collide with individual realities. The opening chapter of "Little Fires Everywhere" details how the Richardsons' house burns down. It's clear it's arson, and it's pretty clear who did it. It's also evident that the Warrens, the mother and daughter who live in the Richardsons' rental property, have skipped town.
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".
