Music brings people together. It makes us scream, dance, cry, paint our faces, pump our fists and jump up and down until our calves mount a rebellion. Music can be celebration, protest, sermon and memorial. Across the globe it is universal, “a basic part of being human.”So when we started thinking about how we wanted to support the victims of the Las Vegas shooting last month, we knew it had to include music, specifically the bright, energetic, rising artists that ABP and Emerge are all about.
On stage, Lebanese icon Yasmine Hamdan is smaller than you’d expect from her videos—but her voice, impossibly, is bigger. When she performed November 7 at Martyr’s in Chicago, her bandmates towered over her as her voice sailed commandingly above the guitar, drums and keyboards. Her range of expression was stunning, from sweeping romanticism on the ballad “Beirut” to rapid-fire, comic, almost-rap on “Aziza“, in which she voices the virgin menaced by “a fat, hairy pig” in Egyptian cinema.
Once the domain of rainforest canopies in Costa Rica and adventure parks in Puerto Rico, ziplines have arrived in Las Vegas in recent years, offering an adrenaline rush not tied to a turn of the cards or a spinning slot. In 2018, the Las Vegas Strip will see its first zipline debut at Caesars Entertainment's Linq Promenade. The $20 million Fly Linq zipline will feature 10 parallel lines that leave from a 122-foot tower at the Linq Hotel & Casino.
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".
