The garden was a maze of Tetris-shaped pieces, raised boxes abutting others, forcing feet into narrow, winding paths. Owen sat over a large bucket, a painter’s white mask domed over his mouth and nose. “I used to do this without a mask,” he said, “but after a few seasons, you notice that all this fine feathery stuff goes right into your lungs.” He held a bundle of lettuce stalks in his hand, the tops a puff of white, downy seed feathers very much like the head of a dandelion.
As is usual with Contemporary American Theater Festival productions, the play “Everything Is Wonderful” asks more questions than it answers.Can the grace of God, or the passage of time, heal all things?Is it possible to forgive and forget on demand?And, rather than “forgive and forget,” is there value in remembering?Chelsea Marcantel’s play, set in an Amish community, begins with a knock on the front door of the household of Jacob (Paul Deboy) and Esther (Hollis McCarthy), who have recently...
If yoga, wilderness and meditation is your cup of kombucha, you might want to check out Wanderlust, a festival that started in California in 2009 and has grown to include sites throughout the country, into Canada, and most recently in Australia.Though massive, it bills itself as a three-day retreat and, in a sense, it’s the antithesis of a stereotypical summer fest, which, let’s be honest, often becomes less about the music ,food and sleeping under the stars and more about the party and...
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".
