It’s the end of the year on the Coast and that means it’s time to get your gumbo orders in to Mary Mahoney’s, make some pans of Bill Vrazel’s Eggplant LaRosa, order you pusharatas from the Slavonian Lodge and buy your tickets to see Martina McBride. The CMA- and ACM-award winning country singer returns to Biloxi on Friday for an 8 p.m. show at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. Tickets start at $74 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.
The Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center is being transported into a magical world full of fantastical creatures and a volcano, a place where fantasy and reality intertwine. The place is “Varekai,” which is the latest traveling production of the renowned Cirque Du Soleil to hit South Mississippi. “Varekai” opens Wednesday at the coliseum, and it has seven shows before it finishes its run on Sunday, Dec. 3. Tickets for all performances are available at Ticketmaster.com.
And the debate rolls on — stuffing or cornbread dressing? Chicken and dressing or oyster dressing? Oyster dressing with rice or cracker? Common sense or a stuffing made out of little hamburgers? The hamburger chain White Castle has introduced a stuffing just in time for Thanksgiving. It has all of the regular dressing items such as celery and sage. And five White Castle sliders. For those of us not living close to a White Castle, they can be found in the freezer section of most grocery stores.
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".
