How do you follow up a career as one of the most celebrated ballet dancers in the world? Become the artistic director of another, major metropolitan ballet company. That was the career path Julie Kent followed in recent years, from retiring as a celebrated Principal Dancer in American Ballet Theatre in 2015 to becoming Artistic Director last year of The Washington Ballet, which performs Wednesday through Aug. 27 at Jacob's Pillow Dance.
January means many things to many people. The start of a new year. The end of the holidays. The delight of ski season or the dread of facing more short, cold New England days. (Then again, that's why night skiing was invented.) And for many people, January means the beginning of many New Year's resolutions. And right near the top of many people's to-do lists each January is losing weight. Certain foods suddenly become foes instead of friends.
Early in the 1967 French crime thriller Le Samouraï, the ice-cold assassin in the film played by Alain Delon surveys a Paris side street in the rain for just the right car to steal for a job. An Audi drives by as François de Roubaix’s hypnotic organ music plays. No interest. A policeman places a parking ticket on another, boxy car. Not even a glance. Delon could choose any car he wants. But he has his eye set on the sleek, curving car parked a few feet away—a Citroën DS 19.
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".
