Shortly after takeoff from Heathrow Airport this past fall, a barefoot young woman sat in the empty Icelandair seat next to me, wearing a princess-waist dress with orange mandala swirls and a pendant on her forehead. She introduced herself to me as Cynthia, but said she was thinking of changing it to Celestia. She and her boyfriend, Richie, had been trekking through Central Asia. In Afghanistan, someone had sold Richie a carved dove made out of hashish and they had smoked it.
The ROLI Lightpad Block – released in 2016 – is a wireless, multitouch, pressure-sensitive MIDI touchpad device with a backlit display of 15x15 LEDs. The Lightpad has a very tactile and flexible surface that is more ergonomic than a touch screen for applying pressure, plus the new 2017 Lightpad Block M includes small waves on its surface offering a tactile ‘guide’ for your fingers; both of these features offering more precise control and a more satisfying experience compared to similar products.
Let’s talk about some typical Canadian documentaries. Where do they take place? In rural India, where Hindu girls practice military drills and swear death to their religious enemies while their peers preen for the nation’s biggest beauty pageant a few hours away? In southwest Mexico, where a poetry-spouting intellectual puffs a pipe through a balaclava and seizes the world media’s attention by leading an Indigenous revolt against free trade?
Join writer, director, music artist, former actress, entrepeneur, and proud feminist Rose McGowan as she discusses her poignant memoir/manifesto BRAVE.
In partnership with INDIGO.

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".
