DAWSON CITY, YUKON TERRITORY — “And stayed.” Two words you will hear often when you launch into conversations with the people of Dawson City. “I packed up my car in Toronto with everything I felt was worth keeping and I drove until I got here. I arrived on April 17, 1987,” says Brad Whitelaw, who now owns multiple businesses in Yukon. “And stayed.”Whitelaw was a carpenter when he arrived in the historic town that was the centre of the Klondike Gold Rush.
I challenge you to walk away from Mont-Saint-Michel and not look back. You will find it an impossible feat. The medieval icon dares you to depart. It commands your gaze from miles away and once you arrive ensnares your imagination after you’ve migrated within its walls. When I exited, I continued to turn back to get another glimpse of this beguiling mass of granite, gold and gall that had first caught my attention 12 years ago when I read about it in a magazine.
For Vienna, 1918 was a horrific year. The end of World War I brought stark political changes, social upheaval, and economic hardship. Like other parts of the world, it struggled with the Spanish influenza epidemic. Fate did not discriminate when it broke hearts but it did seem particularly cruel to the Austrian capital when it refused to spare its cultural breath. Its art world — the creative force that kept the city vital and dynamic even as its historic empire crumbled — was decimated.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
