Most people have had this feeling at one time or another: “I’m so angry I could smash something.” But what if you were invited to destroy an object, and then put it back together? An event at this year’s Philadelphia Fringe Festival is doing just that. The boys’ locker room in the Bok building – the former South Philly public school – is the staging ground for perhaps the smallest performance in the 2017 festival lineup.
A painting often has a story to tell. But that story can spill out beyond the canvas. What happened just before — or after — that scene? What lies past the frame, just out of sight? This weekend, The Renegade Company will explore those questions at the Barnes Arboretum. They'll bring to life a 1901 painting from the Barnes Foundation's collection: "Unpleasant Surprise" by Henri Rousseau. "We continue the story that's brought up in the image," said artistic director Michael Durkin.
Bastille Day commemorates the 18th century storming of the infamous prison in Paris, a watershed moment in the French Revolution. All around France there are celebrations to mark the day. Here in Philadelphia, Bastille Day at the Eastern State Penitentiary has grown into a beloved local event, with some Philly flourishes.
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".
