Is It Possible to Have a Successful Relationship in Aviation? Relationships are, at best, never easy. They require a great deal of trust, maintenance and understanding, and oftentimes even those elements are not enough. When you throw in an aviation career, a whole new ratio of ingredients needs to be accounted for – sort of like baking at a higher altitude. Except with more crying.
Becoming a Flight Attendant Right After 9/11I was among the very first flight attendants hired in the U.S. after that dark day in September of 2001, once the dust literally began to settle in New York City. I had not once been dissuaded to heed the calling I’d always felt to wear the wings of a flight attendant, and witnessing the events unfold firsthand did nothing to change that. Of everyone, my mother was the most understanding of that need.
Go Fly Yourself: The Naked Flight Attendant Ad & the History That Just Won’t Go AwayHave you seen that ad with the naked flight attendants yet? (If you’re so inclined, it’s here, and it’s SFW. ) The advertisement, for a travel company based in Kazakhstan, caused an uproar due to its tacky portrayal of flight attendants wearing nothing but pouty lips and a hat placed over their lady gardens.
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".
