When the temperature goes down, stoves get cranked up. We dream about the belly-warming dishes that we will prepare for our families and friends. We curl up inside our homes with cookbooks in our laps. Curious cooks love to read about food and discover new recipes. With that in mind, The Daily Gazette asked bookstores (and a museum gift shop) for some book ideas. But we weren’t looking for Ina Garten or Giada De Laurentiis.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Eighteen years ago, when MASS MoCA was born in a sprawling complex of brick factory buildings, its size and mission were daunting. Could this expanse of rough industrial space really be transformed into a major museum for contemporary art? Would people travel to a small, down-and-out village in western Massachusetts to see the art? In 1999, we wound our way through 19 galleries and 100,000 square feet of exhibit space.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — If only this piano could talk. The crown jewel of the exhibit “Orchestrating Elegance” is a piano forte designed by Gilded Age artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and made by Steinway and Sons in the 1880s. Inlaid with ebony, ivory, coral, abalone and many other decorative elements, it was elaborate heart of a music room that Alma-Tadema dreamed up for Henry Marquand’s Manhattan mansion.
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".
