In her history-teasing play “The Great Leap,” Lauren Yee takes her own imaginative vault over the decades by telling the story of Manford, a hungry Chinese-American 17-year-old basketball player who persuades a college coach to let him join his team for its impending trip to Beijing. The year is 1989. Eighteen years earlier, Saul Slezac, of the foul-mouth and protruding belly, took the American team for a exhibition game to China.
“Ninth time is a charm” was how Rep. Tom Massey put his annual push for more muscular film incentives to lure filmmaking –and jobs — to Colorado. Massey said this standing in the frigid morning air a couple hours before introducing House Bill #1286 on Feb. 8. Tonight, Massey’s persistent vision is being honored with the 3rd Annual Governor’s Hall of Fame Award presented by the Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media at the Denver Film Society’s official Oscar party.
Hundreds of young swimmers appeared undaunted by the single-digit cold Saturday afternoon as they awaited the red-carpet arrival of gold medal champion Missy Franklin and her London Olympics teammate Kara Lynn Joyce outside the Buell Theatre in Denver. Like their aquatic heroes, they have practiced in worse. Franklin and Joyce star in the documentary “Touch the Wall,” by co-directors Christo Brock and Grant Barbeito. The movie received its world premiere at the 37th Starz Denver Film Festival.
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".
