From the “cradle of civilization” to computer-generated art, the works of Jake Stephens and Marianne Stanke draw inspiration from a span of thousands of years and — in Stephens’ case — from things that might not even have counterparts in the real world.IF YOU GOWHAT: Art exhibits — “Virtual Reality: Land for Sale in the World of Non-Existence” by Jake Stephens and “Through My Eyes” by Marianne Stanke WHEN: Runs through Feb. 17 WHERE: Pump House Regional Arts Center, 119 King St.
Most of us are familiar with how improvisational comedy works and how people who are good at it can take silly suggestions from an audience and make up a skit on the spot. The show at the Marie W. Heider Center for the Arts in West Salem on Jan. 20, however, takes that premise one giant step further.Members of the cast for Broadway’s Next Hit Musical will somehow create a full-fledged Broadway musical on the spot from imagined songs suggested only moments before by the audience.
To the editor — I don’t know whether to be proud about what we’ve done in 2017, or sad and ashamed. Yes, the Women’s March was three times the inauguration crowd — sorry, Trump. Slimy sexual predators were fired and thrown out (but not from the White House). The world shifted — this behavior is not OK, women are not going to take it anymore. Not locker room talk, not nowhere talk. We blocked airports to stop illegal bans on Muslims.
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".
