Your Sunday self is a zen genius. The birds practically pull back your curtains, your homemade smoothie bowl is on point, and you finally mastered that advanced pigeon pose at the yoga studio. Your Thursday self? That’s an entirely different story, wrought with plot twists involving pizza orders and excuses that have you playing hooky from the gym.
Sit back, relax and … enjoy (?) a 17.5 hour flight from Houston to Sydney.United Airlines debuted its new non-stop, 8,596-mile flight Houston to Sydney on Jan. 18, which makes it one of the longest flights in the world. It’s 18 miles longer than Qantas’ flight from Dallas-Forth Worth to Sydney.United Airlines flight 101 departed Houston at 8 p.m. and will arrive in Australia’s largest city at 6:30 a.m. two days later, once you factor in the time change and crossing the International Date Line.
Have you ever wondered why Easter (which is the Christian holiday that celebrates Jesus’ resurrection from the tomb) doesn’t have a set date on the calendar, such as how Christmas is always Dec. 25? Well, the short answer is because the date of Easter is dependent on solar and lunar cycles. Specifically, Easter generally falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon of the March equinox.
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".
