A radiant performer with an almost secretly-colossal, three-octave vocal range, Serena Ryder is a Canadian multi-tool — moving like a confident ghost through the walls of folk, country, lite rock and, lately, the sort of Autotuned, positive power pop that makes it seem like the entire history of rock and roll happened at once — tonight, perhaps, until sometime around the break of dawn.
Figure painter Doug Jahma, who died suddenly of a heart attack in May, didn’t have a service in a church or funeral home. Instead, his family consented to an art show at Front Gallery this Saturday, an evening of tribute and remembrance. Front’s owner Rachel Bouchard discusses the painter, who was born in Edmonton in 1952. “Doug spent ten years as a professional musician. Ten years training as a visual artist, working primarily in abstraction.
During the initial Rust Magic Street Mural Festival last September, $20,000 worth of anticipated funding vanished, just like that. Insult to injury, so did the unborn fest’s biggest wall-as-canvas: a 12-storey spot on Capital Tower on 101 Street — pulled due to emergency street repairs. Organizers Trevor Peters and Annaliza Toledo needed that cash, hoped for that space. But they said to hell with hurdles and went boldly ahead with the city-spanning public art project, anyway.
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".
