Most of the time, if you want to enjoy a wizard- and magic-themed event, you go to a Harry Potter reading at a bookstore with costumed kids and pretend you're at Hogwarts. But that is not the case with Wizard U., a new, adults-only event coming to Mr. Smalls Theatre. At the event, which runs for six hours, visitors can alternate between an ongoing stage show with magicians, comedians and other entertainers, and hands-on classes in magic, spell casting and potion brewing.
When autumn winds down and thoughts turn to the winter holidays, we take down the ceramic pumpkins, ghostly Halloween adornments and Thanksgiving pilgrims. For many, it’s time for the yuletide, and with it comes the flood of Christmas-themed décor: ornamented trees and countless figurines, wall hangings and tea towels with pictures of Santa Claus, Rudolph and elves. Then New Year’s Day arrives, and those items are sent to the attic.
We all hoped for the best with Hurricane Harvey, but Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago taught us to prepare for the worst. In that storm, a reported 250,000 pets and 2,000 humans lost their lives — some because they refused to leave their beloved pets behind. After Hurricane Katrina, federal leaders unanimously passed Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act of 2006, guaranteeing that rescue operations would focus on the needs of furry family members in future emergency evacuation situations.
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".
