If you are one of my readers you probably know that I am not Hungarian. Then why would I write about Hungarians if I am not one of them? I figured that being married to one for ? (don’t ask me how many) years qualifies me as an insider. So here is what you should know about Hungarians before you travel to Hungary. Hungarians are perceived as introvert and quiet people, generally very reserved. At the same time, they are very straightforward and will seldom hide their discontent.
It’s early morning and Dubrovnik’s old town area looks deserted. No tourists taking selfies in front in Piazza della Loggia. No music coming from the nearby cafés. In the restaurants, the chairs are still stacked upside down on the tables. Just the sound of our hurried steps on the polished limestone pavement of Stradun, the main street of Dubrovnik. The gray clouds that brought a downpour last night still linger over the city walls, making them look dark and gloomy.
When you only have a day in a city like Milan, there is no sense in making any big plans. Trying to accomplish anything will only fill you with disappointment, especially when that one day happens to be your first time in that city. Ultimately there are two categories of things that attract me into a big city: buildings and atmosphere. And what better way to get an idea of both than walking the streets of Milan aimlessly?
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".
