As much as Iâ€™m so in love with where I grew up (in Lynn Valley in North Vancouver, literally at the tip-top of the mountain! ), one thing that I always missed out on every year growing up was really seeing the seasons changeâ€”the evergreens that cover every available spot of our neighbourhood are beyond stunning but as their name suggests, thereâ€™s not really any change with the seasons (other than getting blanketed in snow at a certain point in the winter!).
Sometimes when Iâ€™m trying to type out my travel diaries, I struggle with what the opening point is. Do I dive in chronologically or do I share my favourite takeaway from the whole trip? With my Jasper diary though, I knew I had to start with the point when I first felt truly awestruck, which Iâ€™m happy to report happened continuously throughout the whole trip, which I was lucky enough to go on with Tourism Jasper for their Dark Sky Festival.
Have you ever been in a bit of a brain fog week? Like the creative juices arenâ€™t flowing, your momentum isnâ€™t quite the same and your productivity has completely gone down the drain? I donâ€™t know what it is specifically but the last week or so has been a bit of a struggle for meâ€”there have been a few things that have been understandably distracting me outside of work (nothing crazy or bad, just some out-of-the-ordinary things that have thrown me off a bit!)
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".
