Call it the Instagram affect. But travel is having a moment. And all that wanderlust might make holiday shopping in 2017 a whole lot easier. Because when you give the gift of travel, you're offering more than just another iPhone X or or the PlayStation 4. You're offering an experience that can last a lifetime. However, travel gift ideas are tricky.
Thanksgiving 2017 is looking to be bigger than ever and not just because of the excess traffic on the roads. Experts are predicting huge flash travel sales for Cyber Monday and Travel Deal Tuesday this year, with some companies kicking off the deals as early as Black Friday. And while the shopping bonanza seems to be getting bigger every year, that doesn't guarantee you a deal. Here's how to keep a cool head and snag that Italian vacation you always wanted, for half the price.
From Senegal to China to Mexico, Forbes' 2018 list of budget travel destinations is better than ever before. And with an all-star panel of experts, from KAYAK CEO Steve Hafner to TV host Samantha Brown, it's no wonder. Luckily for us, this seems to be the year of the island. From budget-friendly islas in Panama to cheap archipelagos in the South Pacific, 2018 is all about getting stranded on an affordable island paradise.
@jgibbjr@SulomeAnderson You missed the point here. Not at all about access to Saudis (which, btw is a big assumption on your part) but about the fact she is chasing paychecks while successful male columnists are applauded for half-baked articles
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".
