Trumbull Democrats again this year have tried to change the number of voting districts we have in our town. Originally, the town of Trumbull was a four-voting district town, then Trumbull Democrats changed it 30+ years ago to give them a greater advantage each election year with seven. The town charter says that each political party can only have enough candidates that are one less than the number of seats on the town council in each district.
Testament stands before us, announcing himself as a “conscious MC”. Or at least, as this 75-minute mix of beatboxing, standup and storytelling demonstrates, that’s what he’s trying to be. This one-man show is all about the concept of wokeness: the state—or process—of having one’s eyes opened to social justice issues.
That Nic Green, Rosana Cade and Laura Bradshaw’s much-feted 2015 piece appears in the Furnace Festival on the same evening as brand-new show WOKE is a sign of the strength and vibrancy of West Yorkshire Playhouse’s approach to new work. It’s also a fascinating juxtaposition of performative approaches to male power. Cock and Bull is challenging, to both audience and performers. Striding onto the stage in an androgynising suit, Cade welcomes us briefly and begins.
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".
