I was on the train home from a redeye flight into JFK with an almost dead phone when I saw Away’s ads. The first one I noticed showed a man charging his phone right from his suitcase. I looked down at my trusted Everlane weekender tucked between my feet, then at the little red battery at the top right corner of my phone. I’ve always loved sticking with brands and products, but the envy I felt towards that man in the photo surpassed all of that. And I got my first piece of Away luggage.
In this week's episode of the VICELAND show JUNGLETOWN—which looks at the attempt to build a sustainable community in the Panamanian jungle—Kalu Yala loses a leader. A biology intern turned activist, Cahill Shpall went to the jungle thinking he'd stay forever. But as many interns are figuring out, Kalu Yala's idealistic promises didn't line up with its reality. But Shpall's decision to leave wasn't easy to make.
If there's one thing proved by Jungletown—VICELAND's show about attempting to build a sustainable community, Kalu Yala, within the Panamanian jungle—it's that building a sustainable community isn't easy. Along with the already strenuous living and working conditions, it's an experience that's impossibly trying, as culinary arts intern Gianna Sinopoli eventually learned.
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".
