Just as its older cousin, Austin City Limits Music Festival, has brought crowds to this Texas city since 2002, a new festival in Norwalk hopes to do the same. Come ready to enjoy local musicians and delicious fare from area restaurants. Produced by Norwalk Now, a collaborative marketing group that launched late last year, the five-day event is designed to “showcase area musicians (in more than 30 performances), create local foot traffic and relieve cabin fever,” according to a recent news release.
‘Cardboard Explosion!’: Puppeteer uses everyday objects to tell his talesMany a child has been known to like the box a gift came in as much as the toy itself. For puppeteer Brad Shur, a cardboard box offers endless possibilities and multiple storylines - something he works to bring to life in his live show “Cardboard Explosion!”The production arrives this weekend at the Palace Theatre in Stamford, as Shur transforms simple shapes into characters.
Robert Mars reaches up to a cardboard box where a page from an old newspaper peeks out. It is one of about a half-dozen such receptacles, all holding publications that would have been topical some 50 to 60 years ago. They occupy several shelves of a bookcase in his Redding studio. Then there are the stacks of old magazines, such as Life and National Geographic, in nearly a dozen plastic crates scattered throughout the space. “I will never get through all of these,” Mars, says, smiling.
Enjoyed a wonderful evening @AvonTheatre last May with @joesview and others during a screening of "I Am Not Your Negro." You have about 45 minutes to tune into @IndependentLens on PBS to watch it tonight.
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".
