For Kelly McIntyre, it was just another audition — part of her new routine as a young actress trying to get started in New York. The Newton North High School graduate showed up first thing in the morning and put her name on the list. And then waited. She’d moved to the city shortly after graduating from University of Hartford’s Hartt School six months prior.
This New Year’s Eve offers a prime opportunity to party like it’s 1999. Or 1996. Or 1992. Or any other year from that decade, actually. Saved by the 90s is a one-stop-shop party whose centerpiece is a band playing an improbably eclectic playlist of hits from that era, from Britney Spears to Nirvana. It arrives at the Middle East Downstairs on New Year’s Eve via a healthy dose of music-fan enthusiasm and an innovative business model.
Things are not going exactly as planned for Dispatch, but that’s OK.On its summer tour this year, which continued a comeback that began in 2011 with the group’s first studio album in a decade, founding members Chad Urmston and Brad Corrigan started calling out old Dispatch tunes at soundcheck. Recently minted touring members Matt Embree, Mike Sawitzke, and John J.R. Reilly kept getting new homework assignments. After a couple tours in its current formulation, is the group pretty tight?
Remember last week when POTUS told a fanciful lie about news anchors sending him letters in praise of his immigration meeting and the WH made only the most halfhearted attempt to pretend it was true and then everyone just moved on? We lack the bandwidth to process all this.
But...the media did accurately understand the sentiments of the majority of Americans. Polling in swing states was faulty and so they failed to anticipate that the quirks of our very strange electoral system would result in a minority president. https://twitter.com/mathewi/status/953334963427885056
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".
