My top pick this weekend is at Forth, where Lev Snowe is doing a live music video shoot paired with psychedelic lights and fancy cocktails. If you've got young kids, the Santa Claus Parade is on this weekend, and if you've got slightly older children or are a slightly older child, JimCon is doing a big board game convention all weekend. Chad Anderson has the market cornered on comedy Friday night, fresh off the Canada, It's Complicated tour.
Check out William Prince and Justin Lacroix at the West End Cultural Centre on Friday, then catch the tail end of the Tom Petty tribute at the Handsome Daughter just down the street. On Saturday, the WSO is throwing a Mad Men-themed party with music from the '50s and '60s. Before the show, stop by Lanside Grocery in the West End for a few fancy cocktails. Last but not least, Cinematheque has a sort-of-art, sort-of-mainstream drama on with the inimitable Rooney Mara.
Friday night you can get a full night of comedy from a powerhouse lineup of funny women for free and then head over to The Tallest Poppy for a night of live hip hop and a dance party. On Saturday, the WAG is setting up for a massive craft sale with artisans from all over Canada, including Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Saturday night the Handsome Daughter celebrates their third birthday with a little help from The Lytics and 3PEAT.
this is a long shot but does anyone have info about shelter/housing centres in London (UK) where a person can go *today* to get help? my best friend just walked by a crying homeless man & asked if he was ok. he said "I don't want to be homeless anymore" we are trying to help.
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".
