Mujica, along with 32-year-old Mayra Serna, established CACtTUS in January to elevate the conversation of art among the community and aspiring artists. According to Mujica, CACtTUS has collaborated and worked with dozens of artists as well as other project spaces since its opening in January with intentions of creating a free space for creatives to experiment and grow without capitalistic draw backs. “As a donation-based space, we have the ability to exercise freedom in art,” Mujica said.
Bensussen is certainly not the first musician to be accused of sexual assault and won’t be the last if artists continue to receive support despite their crimes. Music should be a safe outlet and create unity among fans and artists but the historically prevalent lack of action against predators is harming the music community and the values it is intended to hold. Celebrities and musicians are often put on elusive pedestals and are not held accountable for their actions.
“We go to vegan events all around the area and this is one of the best we’ve done,” Meghan Marshall, a 33-year-old employee at Easy Organics, a beauty company, said. “The Vegfest is by far the most organized and has the most vendors.”After years of working as a regional manager for a fashion brand, Easy Organics owner Fati Marie teamed up with Marshall to launch a one-stop shop beauty company promoting cruelty-free, eco-friendly and vegan products.
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".
