Londoners might want to reconsider their dinner plans for a few days. The annual London International Food Festival is on Friday through Sunday at Victoria Park, offering fare from around the world, live music, artisans and other vendors. “If people really want to try some new cuisines, you can have true ethnic foods,” said Doug Hillier of Family Shows Canada.
London’s music community is coming together to play some tunes and raise some money to help support abused and sexually assaulted women. The 15th annual Grand House Party in support of Anova — the new name for the merged Women’s Community House and Sexual Assault Centre of London — will be with Viva Las Vegas: Then and Now, featuring the Grand House Party Orchestra led by drummer Jeff Christmas and producer/vocalist Jean Meilleur.
Ticket sales were up along with revenues for artists at this year’s London Fringe Festival. But weather and competing festivals curtailed some sales and events at the 18th edition which ended June 11. Producer Kathy Navackas said the early departure of several artists to overlapping Fringe festivals in Ottawa and Montreal, as well as a power outage in Old East Village that darkened two venues, the Palace Theatre and its Procunier Hall, cut into ticket sales.
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".
