If you’re going to write a musical about your life, it helps to have a treasure trove of catchy, familiar tunes. It also doesn’t hurt to have a big, life-defining moment. Gloria Estefan had both — a decade of hits including “1-2-3” and “Rhythm is Gonna Get You, and a near-fatal bus accident in 1990 that led to a lengthy recovery and triumphant return at the 1991 American Music Awards.
The 83rd season of the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park began Sunday on a somber note. The Russian String Orchestra, visiting from Moscow, added an opening number to its announced program as a tribute to victims of the Las Vegas shooting. “In Memory of Henry Temianka” was composed by Tom Schnauber to honor a deceased friend and mentor. The piece began and ended with a whisper, while in between, a repetitive mournful phrase was overcome by the wailing of violins.
The familiar riff of Cyndi Laper’s 1980s pop hit “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” opens performances of the female version of “The Odd Couple” at Garden Theatre — and the women onstage look like they are enjoying themselves immensely. At a recent matinee, the audience was having a ball, too. That’s to be expected in a production with actors this intelligent who land laugh after laugh.
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".
