George S. Schuyler's satire "Black No More" holds a cynical mirror up to its time, but has plenty to say to our world, too. "Black No More" is one of four Harlem Renaissance-era novels reissued this month by Penguin Classics with new introductions from contemporary writers.
One of Racine's sweetest traditions has issued its annual call:Specifically, the Racine Art Museum seeks entries for its annual International PEEPS Art Competition, which takes place this year from March 22 to April 8. During the exhibit, audience members will vote on the PEEPles Choice Award. For the past 8 years, RAM has exhibited Peeps-based artworks from all over creation in a whimsical show. Some are made from or with actual Peeps, the marshmallow confection found in many Easter baskets.
Mark Puchinsky has a perfect background for Renaissance Theaterworks' production of "Russian Transport," Erika Sheffer's play about an immigrant family whose members mingle Russian and English in their opinionated conversation. When he read the script, Puchinsky thought "that's so cool, that's how I speak with my family," he said. The Milwaukee native's parents emigrated from the Soviet Union shortly before its fall, seeking better opportunities here.
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".
