The Utter Stupidity of Smoking on a PlanePeople say good things come in threes, but that certainly isn’t true in the airline industry. Triple chimes in the cabin is always the harbinger of bad news – it could be an emergency call from the captain or the fire alarm. Last week, on an otherwise completely uneventful flight, I heard them. Bing, bing, bing. The red lights flashed along with a message on the flight attendant panel: aft lavatory fire.
What Goes on in Flight Attendant Training? She don’t wear no pants and she don’t wear no tie Always on the ball, she’s always on strike Struttin’ up the aisle, big deal, you get to fly You ain’t nothin’ but a waitress in the sky”Waitress In The Sky” – The ReplacementsThere are a lot of – at best – misconceptions about the role of a flight attendant. At its worst, it’s as the song above reflects.
It’s that time of year – the stocking are hung by the chimney with care, brightly-colored decorations and lights adorn homes and trees…and everyone is getting sick. In fact, I’m sick as a dog while I write this. All I want to do is stay in bed all day with a massive cup of steaming hot tea, hair a mess, binge-watching The Walking Dead. But I can’t, and that’s because I have to go to the airport.
I just proposed that we have a Puppy Bowl party for people (like me) who don’t give a shit about football. We’d serve snacks in dog bowls!!!!!!
Turns out my bf actually does care about the game. No Puppy Bowl party
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".
