Sometimes a trip is just a trip. Other times it’s an inspiration. As a nationally recognized artist whose work focuses on the natural world and the many environmental and human forces that drive ecological change, Alexis Rockman was both intrigued and inspired during a trip along the shores of one of the Great Lakes about six years ago. “I saw Lake Erie and thought, ‘What a fascinating and beaten-down lake.’ I knew about some of the greatest hits of invaders: the lamprey, the zebra mussel.
A show featuring the thought-provoking work of an area artist opens next week at the Art and Performance Center of West Toledo, and will remain on display through the month of March. Randy Bennett’s pieces will be the inspiration for other art during a workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. March 3, when artists are invited to develop their writings and music in response to Bennett’s work. Performances from that work will be produced at a closing reception at 7 p.m. March 31 attended by Bennett.
Marrying the two has been a popular trend for several years now that hasn’t faded from the limelight. There’s candied pepper bacon, chocolate-covered bacon, bacon ice cream, bacon doughnuts. No sugar product is safe from those salty slabs of meat and fat, and in northwest Ohio, residents are making sure they get their share.
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".
