Your name is 'Suga' or 'Sweetie.' It's not James, John, Susan or Jayne. Not when you step into a Waffle House. Not when your server is a rapidly scooting between tables, taking orders and slipping hot-off-the-grill comfort food onto Formica tables. Interactions are brief but usually drenched with charm. "Everything all right, baby?"
Louie Anderson insists his June 18 shows in Annapolis will include "all the 'F' words." Anderson's June 18 show times are 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. at Rams Head On Stage. The stand-up comedy legend is working on material in preparation for a new television special. The 64-year-old Minnesota native kept his act "clean" during a four-decade career. He draws much of the inspiration for his material from his family. Anderson aims for his show to entertain parents, kids and grandparents.
Pass your resolution, then get to the real work. The seven elected members of the council won't be judged by the passage of a platitudinous citation condemning hate crimes. They will be judged by their actions. So Monday, get the procedural hand-cleansing resolution off your plate. Then, put on your big boy pants and try to make a real difference. The tragic killing of Second Lt. Richard Collins III at the University of Maryland, College Park on May 20 seems to have awakened the council.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
