Fans were arm-in-arm in the audience at The Grand that night in June 2013. Some had tears in their eyes. Others were waving Equality Delaware signs. But all seemingly understood the magnitude of the moment. Hours earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court had struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, clearing the way for gay and lesbian couples to get married. Some had been waiting decades to formally recognize their love.
Entering a fourth season, it looks like Wilmington has a new holiday tradition on its hands. With cold air pushing in and Thanksgiving dinners hitting tables, that means the city's Riverfront Rinkis about to be swarming with families looking for an outdoor skate session. The timing couldn't be better for the opening weekend of the ice skating rink, which was erected in recent weeks at the summertime site of the Constitution Yards Beer Garden on the Riverfront.
Montreal-based rockers Ought will wrap up their 16-date, pre-holiday East Coast tour at Arden’s Gild Hall (2126 The Highway) on Monday night. The Pitchfork-approved band, which melds art rock, pop and post-punk sounds, will release its third album, “Room Inside the World,” in February. That means Delaware fans are likely to get a sneak preview of some of the new tunes.
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".
