On a sunny day over the Christmas holidays, a small group of people squeezed through the narrow lanes of Wong Chuk Hang San Wai. To those zipping past on the MTR’s new South Island Line, this tight cluster of houses probably looks like a squatter village, but its history goes back farther than they might expect. “The name of Hong Kong may come from this village,” says Anthony Chan, who leads a new eco travel tour through the South Side’s built heritage and natural landscape.
It’s a couple of hours before service at Ronin , the Sheung Wan izakaya, and beverage director Elliot Faber is folding washcloths as he chats with a visitor about his favourite holiday drinks. “Do you [know] Raphael Holzer?” he asks. Holzer is one of the men behind Fernet Hunter, an amaro made in Austria for the Hong Kong market. “His family makes what they call Holzer Tea. They sent it to him from Austria in a recycled Pepsi bottle.
“We have heard that sitting is the new smoking,” says Cris O’Brien, co-founder of the Keep Moving Project, a non-profit that promotes health and wellness. He is referring to work by the Mayo Clinic’s James Levine, who has attributed extended periods of sitting to obesity, high blood pressure and abnormal levels of cholesterol. It turns out it isn’t just the smoke breaks that are killing you; it’s everything in between.
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".
