No matter what you think of Russia, the country has brought us some incredibly talented composers. Catchby the Omaha Symphony at the Holland Performing Arts Center this weekend and hear for yourself. These two world-renowned, romantic-era musical virtuosos’ compositions have been wresting emotions from listeners for decades (over a century in Tchaikovsky’s case). Open your mind, your ears, and your heart this weekend and let the music take your troubles away.
Pick of the Week: Saturday, Oct. 14: Well, we were so excited about the Coffee & Donut Festival we jumped the gun last week. But this week it’s for real and our pick of the week. So, get to Hotel RL and make up for not getting to enjoy all the steamy coffee and tasty doughnuts you were craving last week. Of course, there’s still the doughnut eating contest, doughnut queen contest, and that jelly doughnut wrestling you won’t want to miss. Plenty of kids’ activities and live music round out the fun.
Friday, Oct. 6 to Sunday, Oct. 8: If you can’t get enough of home renovation shows and you’re always on the look out for the next big “wow” item, then Junkstock: Harvest Edition should be your home this weekend. All things junk, vintage, or handmade will be on full display at Sycamore Farms for three straight days of rummaging. Food will also be on hand, as well as some incredible live, local music from artists like Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal and Jocelyn.
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".
