Who can forget the smoldering Elizabeth Taylor (and the equally smoldering Paul Newman) in the film adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”? The famous play has been performed countless times since it was first shown in 1955 in New York. It won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama that same year. This time around, Culture at the Cinema brings a live recording of the West End production to the big screen for one night only on March 17.
It’s hard to believe that it has already been a year since a sea of green walkers, joggers and runners made their way around Britannia to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in fine form. This time, the 5k Irish Jog is set for March 16 to give people time to recuperate for the March 17 parties. Most of the 5k events on the island tend to happen in the early hours of the morning. If you’re not the type to rise before the sun, this is the jog for you.
St. Paddy’s Day, as the Irish nickname it, is one of the Ireland’s most-celebrated events, though regardless of what time of year or day you choose to visit Ireland, you’ll likely find some sort of celebration going on there! What started as a one-day holiday on March 17 has since grown to a multi-day celebration enjoyed by millions across the globe every year. However, St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t always about getting drunk and painting yourself green from head-to-toe.
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".
