Hampstead born Stephen Fry collaborated Hampstead local Louis Mander on their new operaIt pays to have ambition if you’re a composer, and a hard neck comes in useful too. But it was a textbook demonstration of the two combined when an unknown, untried composer straight out of the Royal College of Music wrote to one of Britain’s best-known media stars suggesting that they work together on an opera.
Lionel Richie, the first-ever (! ) Westward Music Festival and more performances to check out this fall. Two legends of pop/R&B hit-making (combined album sales: more than 300 million) tour the continent together at contrasting periods in their respective careers, Richie having been reassessed as a timeless treasure following years as a meme punchline and Carey trying to restore lustre to her brand after the lip-syncing tire fire that was New Year’s Eve 2016.
When Milk & Sugar Café opened in Bay Shore nearly 18 years ago, all owners Gina and Lenny Jaworowski had to offer was coffee and pastries. And the right atmosphere. The show Friends was still hugely popular, and the twenty- and thirty-somethings loved sitting on the coaches, their own version of Central Perk here in Suffolk County. The next year, the newlyweds introduced lunch. Dinner came three years after opening. “Within six years we had breakfast, lunch and dinner down pat,” Gina said.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
