Harvard Square habitues: We have good news, and we have bad news. First the bad news. Cafe Algiers, the noirish Middle Eastern haunt that shuttered briefly last fall, will close its doors for good this August after 57 years. The good news is that the famed location will be in skilled hands. Chef Michael Scelfo, whose Alden & Harlow took over the subterranean Casablanca in 2014, will transform the Algiers space into a new restaurant called Longfellow.
It’s been a while since Adam Sandler has been the toast of anything. The actor-comedian, who grew up in Manchester, N.H., first broke big in the ’90s on “Saturday Night Live,” when “The Hanukhah Song” — his irreverent paean to the Jewish holiday — made him a star. He went on to star in and produce a mindboggling slate of comedies, many of which were sophomoric at best, embarrassing at worst.
It seemed to work out well the first time, so the Forbes Under 30 Summit will roll back into Boston in October. The event, which draws young tech types and creative thinkers from around the world, made a splash here last fall, hosting a boldface lineup that included Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, actress and Honest Co. founder Jessica Alba, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, and singer Jason Derulo.
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".
