Annette Bloch is disappointed that the weather is cool and rainy, forcing her to remove the cushions from the outdoor furniture on her large terrace overlooking the Plaza. She likes things to be perfect for her guests, and on this night there would be 10 of them who had collectively paid more than $5,000 to dine with Bloch at her penthouse. About 10 minutes before her guests are scheduled to arrive, Bloch asks Andrei Muresan, her fiance, to close the gold silk drapes in the dining room.
The dance floor was hopping with a large portion of Kansas City’s well-to-do and philanthropic set just after 9 p.m. Saturday night in the ballroom at the InterContinental Hotel on The Plaza. Kokomo, a local band made up of a glitzy ensemble of singers backed by an equally glitzy rhythm section pounded out hit songs ranging from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars.
Ashley White, a Kansas City fashionista and creator of the blog Le Stylo Rouge, loves boots so much that she wears them all year long. And there are few styles, she says, that she won’t try. This year’s biggest trends will put that courageous sartorial attitude to the test. Top designers have flooded the fashion market with bold styles ranging from white patent leather booties to snug thigh-high boots that look like leggings.
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".
