It’s 15 years since Ray Cooney, one of our finest exponents of farce, bemoaned the fact that the demise of rep theatre had signalled the death knell for ensemble comedy. Rumpus Theatre Company and its associated organisation Tabs Productions are determined not to let rep theatre disappear. Their spring play season at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate contains three plays, the first of which is Cooney’s 2001 offering Caught in the Net.
The arts must do more to help young people progress in their lives and challenge socio-economic barriers, according to the chair of Arts Council England, speaking at Nottingham Playhouse. During his keynote speech at ACE’s annual diversity event Creative case: leading diverse futures, Sir Nicholas Serota spoke about the impact that diversity could have on the economy and the importance of social mobility.
For many first contact with a SEAT product would have been back in the days of package holidays to the Costa Notalot and a pretty dismal experience it would have been. Mind you back then you would have been thankful that the plane landed in one piece and worried not at all about the recycled Fiat jalopy you had hired. The idea that anyone would visit Espana to take in its cultural delights rather than pints of Red Barrel and the full English as alien as forgetting to pack your knotted hanky.
@speedmonkeycouk I loved these places from my first adventures, about 1970. Loved my first Belgian Supermarche, loved my Chantilly-born father-in-law. Neither of us wanted an end to sovereign independence. Vive la difference, not a nice little earner for the useless Euro-clerk.
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".
