A long time ago in a Gaelic sea far, far away . . . The December 15 release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi compelled several tour operators to launch Star Wars–themed tours that visit filming locations in Ireland, including Donegal, Cork, and the island Skellig Michael, off the coast of County Kerry. This isn’t the first time Ireland has basked in a cinematic afterglow.
These great American towns sure can light up, sing out, and celebrate the Christmas season right. We recommend adding these festive small towns to your holiday travel bucket list, stat! 1. Leavenworth, Wash. On any given day this Bavarian-themed town gives off an Alpine holiday air, but during snowy December, 21 miles of lights trace each peaked roof of the half-timbered village and run scallops along fences.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming This bright star in the western firmament has about everything a winter traveler could want: a thrilling ski resort (in spite of its past reputation as an experts-only hill, lots of intermediate and groomed runs have opened for the rest of us), great food (go high and splurge on a meal at The Kitchen or snag some spicy takeout at Teton Thai), and plenty of activities for non-skiers (say ahhh to a spa day or take a winter snowcoach tour of Grand Teton National Park to see snowy bison).
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".
