Paramore brings the love to Bay Area: Paramore has had its share of hits over the years, notching such platinum-plus-selling singles as “Misery Business,” “Crushcrushcrush,” “Still Into You” and “Ain’t It Fun.” The band is hoping for more success with its fifth studio album, “After Laughter,” its first release since an eponymous outing of 2013. The Tennessee rock act, led by powerful vocalist Hayley Williams, performs Sept. 24 at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland.
After another blockbuster showing Tuesday on “America’s Got Talent’s” final night of performances, 12-year-old ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer looked to be in good shape. Said Simon Cowell after Farmer’s performance, “I think you’re gonna win.”Darci performed with two puppets — Oscar the mouse and Petunia the bunny — according to the Huffington Post. That’d be hard enough for many a ventriloquist, but Farmer upped the ante by having them sing a duet.
1 “Measure for Measure”: Is there any work by Shakespeare that hasn’t taken on new meaning and fresh relevance in the wake of November 2016? Certainly this one has. It’s all about justice, corruption, power, sex and phony morality, with a despotic leader imposing puritanical new rules (no sex, for one thing) while engaging in deviant practices himself.
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".
