Last March, the M+ Museum put on a very original and stimulating multimedia show called Ambiguously Yours: Gender in Hong Kong Popular Culture, which showcased the high level of gender fluidity that the Hong Kong public had grown to love in its greatest local stars.
There is a petition that has started circulating this week, by the Save Lantau Alliance umbrella group which asks people to voice their opposition to yet another half-secretive plan to change the face of Hong Kong’s largest island. This time, there is an alarming proposal which involves relocating the cows and buffaloes that roam freely on Lantau to the uninhabited island of Tai A Chau.
The Korean political movie A Taxi Driver has been screening in Hong Kong theatres to good audiences. Directed by Jang Hun and starring Song Kang-ho, it fictionalises real-life events that took place in South Korea in 1980, when the country was under military dictatorship. Countless protesters were shot in the streets by the army, in what has become known as “the Gwangju Uprising”, with at least 200 dead and thousands of wounded – and the real numbers may be much higher.
@GlennAdamson@phillipsauction Peter Voulkos was incredibly undervalued though, in my view. He is benefiting from a more serious look at ceramics and art - and of course, market is crazy. But that piece is a stunner
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".
