Flying is a...joy over the holidays. The next weeks will see missing-cabin-crew delays and winter-weather cancellations, security lines snaking around more stanchions than you can count, and planes packed to the overstuffed overhead bins with folks just trying to get home in time to get into a fight with their parents. It’s the last problem—too-full flights, not family warfare—that United Airlines is trying to help solve.
It sometimes seems like you can’t swing a brass curtain rod around the English countryside without hitting a family estate turned hotel. But rare are properties with true aristocratic provenance and rarer still ones with all-new decor by a top designer. The recently opened House at Beaverbrook, in Surrey, is one such rara avis.
Thanks to the debut of the country’s first official Civil Rights Trail, you’ll soon be able to walk in the footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and a number of other social justice heroes . Officially launching in January—coinciding with the 155th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s January 1, 1863 signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, and only a few months before the fiftieth anniversary of the April 4, 1968, assassination of Dr. King—the trail includes more than 100 stops.
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".
