Way out in the middle of the Pacific, untethered to any continent or pole, is a vast region known as the Polynesian Triangle. Covering 10 million square miles of open sea and sprinkled with over 1,000 archipelagos, its corners are staked by three main island groups: New Zealand to the south, Easter Island to the east, and to the north: Hawaii. It was from these “Islands of Wonder” (as Polynesia is so often called) that a culture of people who shared a common ancestry and common language grew.
“Wandering around Milan opens a look into the rest of the world,” says Vera Giusti. The longtime resident, who runs the 59-year-old handmade Italian shoe brand Attilio Giusti Leombruni along with her two sisters Sara and Marianna, would certainly know. When she’s not taking appointments in her company’s showroom (which is located on the famed shopping street Via della Spiga), she’s out exploring the city’s vast and lesser-known gems.
“What does success mean if you don’t have the time to enjoy it? If you work 100 hours in six days? If you’re too tired to take advantage of your one day off a week?” These are some of the questions that Chef Missy Robbins found herself asking, when, after 22 years of working at some of the country’s most prestigious restaurants and earning countless accolades (including two Michelin Stars, 3 Rising Star Awards, and the admiration of the Obamas ), she realized she needed to make a change.
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".
