We planned our trip a long time ago. It was to coincide with my birthday, so it was easy enough to plan, as birthdays tend to fall on the same day every year. Different to swells however, as they tend to fall on whenever they feel like it, and planning a trip around a swell is nigh on impossible. Anyway, this isn’t about planning a trip to coincide with a swell, this is about missing a swell. A good one.
What’s next now that Amazon has narrowed the list of contenders vying to entice the online retail giant to build its second headquarters in their city? Ryan Combs, executive director of the Research Triangle Regional Partnership, which submitted seven proposed sites, said Friday that Amazon hasn’t spelled out what else it needs to keep the region in contention for the $5 billion project. “We anticipate hearing back in the near future,” Combs said.
It’s so hard to tell if the interview with Renato Hickel is sanctioned by the WSL or not. It seems a little bit out of place, that an organization with such an extensive and highly skilled marketing team and a deep pool of skilled Public Relations experts would leave it up to him to break such intense news to the public. But there it is. Pay per view is possibly coming, in a sort of tiered format, Trestles is going to be a 10,000 and Cloudbreak is going to return, among other things.
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".
