- On the first Sunday in November each year, New York City effectively shuts down its streets to host one of the world's premier sporting events, the TCS New York City Marathon. There are 26.2 miles, 1.6 million cups of Gatorade and water, $825,000 in guaranteed prize money for the winners, and more Vaseline than you want to think about. Peter Ciaccia, the marathon's race director, says the 2017 race will have north of 50,000 runners. That makes it, once again, the biggest marathon in the world.
- This edition of the Lap of Luxury brought us into the kitchen at Café Boulud with Chef Daniel Boulud and Chef de Cuisine Aaron Bludorn, who are making two beautiful fish. The first, a fluke caught this very morning, is cut in filets, which have been slightly cured for a few minutes and then cut into slivers. The fluke is served with coriander crème fraîche, apples, and fresh finely julienned ginger. The lap of luxury? Uni in the middle, finished with caviar.
- The current political climate is providing one local fashion designer with endless inspiration. Céline Semaan's Slow Factory, based in Brooklyn, uses clothes and accessories to tackle social and political issues. Céline was born in Lebanon in 1982 in the middle of the civil war. A refugee herself, she has always felt a special connection to the displaced people of the world.
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".
