Last week, I poked fun at Waterfront Plaza for still having its vintage 1980s restrooms, now looking shabby. Got a call immediately from Steven Sullivan, vice president of operations at The Shidler Group and general manager of Restaurant Row. New bathrooms are actually on their way! "It's still going though permitting," Sullivan said, "but we're looking at May or June for the restrooms nearest Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and hopefully 2019 for the restrooms near the security office."
Just had a chance to visit the designated Uber and Lyft pick-up location at the airport. Here's a photo of it stashed away on the upper departure deck - not the baggage claim level - in the median strip, just before the freeway on-ramps. It's across from ticketing lobby eight. Any further away and it wouldn't even be on airport property. I've seen smoking areas get treated with more respect.
When a sadistic killer walked on to a Parkland, Florida, high school campus to murder 17 people on Feb. 14, he used two weapons. One was a firearm. The other was the media itself, specifically, cable news. I find it appalling to see CNN spending two weeks on this mass murder, feverishly directing our attention to the firearm, without a shred of introspection about its own role in these repeated school shooting horrors. These are crimes of spectacle, committed for attention.
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".
