It’s hard to think of a movie since Fantasia where music is as pivotal to the plot as it is in Baby Driver, a stylish mashup of action tropes that somehow manages to work. Fans of director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Ant-Man) have long anticipated this project, which Wright says he wrote a decade ago just waiting for the right star to come along.
If laughter is the best medicine, the Toledo Repertoire Theatre administers a pharmacy’s worth with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, a ribald tale of life, love, and lunacy in ancient Rome. The Rep last staged the hit musical in 1984, in a production, we are told, that remains memorable. Whether it surpassed this current version — and those in attendance may well argue that it did — is up for debate.
The Toledo Symphony named noted Canadian conductor-composer Alain Trudel as its new music director Friday, less than a month after its last maestro, Stefan Sanderling, officially vacated the position. Symphony President and CEO Zak Vassar introduced Mr. Trudel at a news conference, calling him the best of the 20 candidates considered for the job, most of whom served as guest conductors for the orchestra over the past two seasons.
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".
