Roughly speaking, there are 16,000-24,000 full-service restaurants, and almost 19,000 counter-service dining options in Manhattan – so it is never difficult to find a place to eat in this town. What does present a challenge is finding a restaurant that rates “delicious” the first time, and holds onto that designation the second and third time (for almost 2 decades). 8 ½ is part of the huge Patina Restaurant Group who own and manage restaurants from New York to Japan.
The intent was to fly to Seoul, Korea; spend two nights dealing with jet lag; and then take the fast train to Busan for two days; returning to Seoul for a week of eating, shopping, exploring, and otherwise finding the soul of the country. Although my colleague and I spent a year carefully designing the itinerary, Air Canada had other plans and stepped in to turn our strategy into chaos.
No one is certain about the future of work and the way individuals, educational systems, governance, economy safety nets, and technology will interact. It is unfortunate that governments cannot be proactive and eagerly embrace change, using the successes and failures as road maps for the future. In the absence of government, corporations and their resources have stepped in to design, develop, and implement a work/life environment – which many have not found useful or fruitful.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
