Donald Trump and a seven-inch record have something in common, and it has nothing to do with size: Trump is the 45th president of the United States, and a seven-inch spins 45 times per minute. It’s poetic, then, that DJ, musician, writer and Westword contributor Jason Heller named his monthly anti-Trump dance party 45s Against 45.
Morrissey and the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals plan to send his concertgoers a pro-vegetarian message, starting tonight, November 20, at his show at the Paramount Theatre. The campaign, which has been in the works for months, is slated to be released in the wake of the singer's interview with the German publication Der Spiegel, in which he defends both Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein from allegations of sexual assault.
Christmas music means a lot to Christians and devotees of that jolly, bearded god of capitalist excess, Santa Clause. Those true believers and frenzied consumers can all be happy that the eclectic pop station KOSI 101.1 is sacrificing its precious airwaves to the spirit of Christmas — 24/7 — starting early, today, November 17. “There’s nothing like Christmas in Colorado, and there’s nothing like a KOSI Christmas,” says KOSI Program Director Andy Holt in a statement.
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".
