The especially cruel element of Tristan Bernays’ one hour play on dementia, Old Fools, is that it understands how much memories constitute romance. In the intimate setting of the Little Theatre at Southwark Playhouse, we are introduced to musician Tom and linguist Vivian. Told out of sync, the better to place us in Tom’s position, unguided by coherent narrative memory, Bernays’ play is a simple boy-meets-girl yarn, but with this cruel twist: Tom will eventually remember none of it.
Set at a presidential nominating convention, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man, which premiered on Broadway in March 1960, and has now transferred to the West End, tells the story of a race between two fictional politicians - the upright and experienced former Secretary William Russell, and the ruthless, ‘plain spoken’ Senator Joe Cantwell. Nine points up, with the former President's endorsement due any moment, the nomination is Russell’s to lose.
They either "huh, quite" or titter. Both noises demonstrate they have understood the construct of the joke. Ironically enough, funnier people are usually smarter, according to science. Test your intelligence as well as your wit on these 12 jokes:(Emphasis being 'appreciate', not necessarily laugh). It's actually "To ". A Buddhist monk approaches a burger food-truck and says “make me one with everything.”What did the scientist say when he found 2 isotopes of helium? Entropy isn't what it used to be.
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".
