All colleges promise to equip their students with tools to succeed. For Richard Daly, Johnson & Wales University did just that — with a chisel and chain saw. It was there that Daly was first introduced to a chain saw, die grinder, sander, chisel and blowtorch as a culinary student in 2000 during his sophomore year of college. His instructor had taught him how to use the tools in a more advanced way and tasked him with creating an ice sculpture for a buffet centerpiece.
Maryann Calendrille, co-owner of Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor, believes she has a good read on one way to beat the winter weather: writing. For more than a decade, Calendrille has hosted a winter writing workshop at the bookstore welcoming writers of all levels to develop a narrative voice, whether it be for fiction, nonfiction or poetry. “The quiet of winter provides the perfect setting for writers to slow down and get to work on writing projects long dreamed of,” Calendrille says.
Even after four decades, the music of “Saturday Night Fever” is stayin’ alive. The NYCB Theatre at Westbury will transform into a disco party on Saturday, Dec. 30, for a “Saturday Night Fever” 40th anniversary concert hosted by Donna Pescow, who played Annette in the 1977 musical drama starring John Travolta. Joining Pescow will be Deney Terrio, a choreographer for the production, who will also share stories on what it was like to work with Travolta.
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".
