From humble beginnings collecting scrap metal, Mr. Bannerman’s fortune mushroomed, taking him abroad where he observed baronial castles. Inspired, he decided to erect a fortress with crenelated towers to house his weaponry. He drew up architectural plans, sometimes on old invoices or napkins, borrowing Scottish, Moorish and Belgian design details. Construction began in 1901. Barges ferried his cannons and artillery up the Hudson, according to a tour guide, Steve Santangelo.
A new wave of venues includes a glass-walled gallery attached to a year-old boutique hotel, the Asbury. The social hub stocks vinyl records and vintage rock 'n' roll T-shirts from Sweet Joey’s, a satellite of its flagship shop at 523 Bangs Avenue. On exhibit there through at least Sept. 15 are roughly 70 arresting photographs of music icons shot by Mr. Clinch, such as local hero Bruce Springsteen, as well as Johnny Cash, Stevie Nicks, Tom Waits and Tupac Shakur.
Mr. Wise is a first-time author, but this is not the first time he has impersonated a character. For a few years, he made a living portraying his great-grandmother, an immigrant Jew in 1938 Brooklyn. That one-man show, “Momma’s Knishes,” was staged at gatherings in hundreds of kitchens in the metropolitan region, he said. He treated his grown-up audience like 13-year-olds, while telling family stories and teaching them how to make knishes.
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".
