Every year the Jewish Book Festival brings to town a lineup of remarkable authors. For the modest sum of $18, you can hear—and meet—the likes of Alice Hoffman (The Marriage of Opposites) and Sidney Blumenthal (The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln). For $99, you can go to hear all of them (about 40 total), including the two keynote speakers: Zac Posen and Sen. Barbara Boxer.
There’s an annual art show on the streets of Old Town St. Charles that I started going to a couple of years ago, and every time I do, I’m amazed at how charming the place is. I don’t mean the occasional kitschy storefront touting ‘olde tyme’ this or that, but all the attractions at the heart of the historic town. It is, after all, the first permanent settlement on the Missouri River, established in 1769.
Since a home is likely to be your biggest financial investment, every decision surrounding it is weighty. Is the neighborhood right? Can I see myself living here? Should I renovate or start over and build from scratch? Home decisions are highly personal; no one can tell you how a particular home or neighborhood makes you feel. But experts can share their wisdom to help you make the most informed choices. And that is what the team at Michael Lauren Development does for its clients.
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".
