Colorado Ballet principal dancer Sharon Wehner has loved the ballet “Romeo and Juliet” since the first time she saw it at the age of 9. “The experience was sort of seared in my memory because it was one of the first times I saw how ballet can be so powerfully moving,” Wehner said recently. “And even at that young age, I could feel the audience affected by the ballet."
Emma Oosterhous, a University of Colorado Boulder grad, tells stories in her webcomic Alphabet Soup about LGBTQ youth and how they mustered up the courage to come out. She was recently awarded a prestigious Marshall scholarship. She tells Colorado Matters she plans to use the support to get her master's degree in comics and graphic novels at the University of Dundee in Scotland. A panel from some of Emma Oosterhous's work.
Audio: David Bledsoe Of The American Indian College Fund Talks About Jim ThorpeThe U.S. Mint in Denver released a new dollar coin on Thursday. David Bledsoe of the Denver-based American Indian College Fund joined Colorado Matters to talk about the coin and the man it features: Jim Thorpe, a member of the Sac and Fox Nation, who's been called "the greatest American Olympian of all time." He won gold medals in the decathlon and pentathlon in 1912.
@robbyj62 Yes, it shows that Thorpe performed much better than the other gold medalist. I was amazed to learn that Thorpe was also a ballroom dancing champ. It seems like there wasn't any physical activity he couldn't master.
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".
