While Americans were able to catch a few glimpses early in the day, the full spectacle of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics came into view Friday night. The theme of the ceremony was “Peace in Motion,” which was highlighted by the musical performances from some notable South Korean artists. But who are they and what should you know about them? Here’s a look at the performers. The children’s choir, known as the The Rainbow Chorus, performed “Aegukga,” the national anthem of South Korea.
We may as well impose a fee to walk through our city’s beautiful Central Park, or to view our city’s architecture, or perhaps even charge for a glimpse at the Statue of Liberty for that matter. Art is to be appreciated by every human being no matter where on our planet they hail from and no matter their economic status. NOO YAWKAAmerican children up to the age of 18 should have free access. In France, I bought yearly passes for myself to all museums.
The Baluyut family -- Tierra, A.J. and their two-month-old Noah -- at the Joy of Eating diner in Vallejo, Calif. Jim Wilson/The New York Times For a Black Man Covering Race, the Story Is Never Far From Home VALLEJO, Calif. — The question, I thought, was harmless enough. “Tell me how being in such a diverse community has influenced you in your life,” I asked Fred Hatfield as we sat at the counter of a diner here.
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".
