In Miami, cold weather is supposed to be a swiftly passing thing, like wanting to eat healthy or the feeling that the Dolphins are going to have a winning season. Florida winter is largely theoretical. We wait for that one chilly day to bust out our leather jackets, then wear them even though it’s far too warm, and call it good. We were ready to get back to our regularly scheduled and grueling Florida tasks, like wearing shorts and flipflops. But winter’s coming back, Miami.
On Tuesday, Starbucks launched a new espresso roast, the first espresso choice in four decades. It’s called Blonde Espresso, and you can order it any number of ways: as a shot, in a flat white, in a latte, whatever your caffeine-addicted, jacked-up heart desires. But here in Miami, we’re not sure we need it. Granted, the roast is considerably less vile than the terrifying Unicorn Frappuccino. It is coffee-based, after all, and all things coffee-based are wondrous miracles that enrich our souls.
Ocean Drive in South Beach is picture perfect, if you don't mind being assaulted with a menu by an overeager hostess at an overpriced restaurant. Though these places might sound interchangeable, they are not. And we are here to help you make distinctions. Miami Beach is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Its southern border is South Pointe Park, which is where you go to watch cruise ships depart and experience either regret or relief at not being on them. I choose relief.
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".
