It was weekday eve following a weekend of terror related incidents in London so notably security was high and tensions were… palpable. As it happened I was en route to an apt venue to relieve the tension, Oblix Bar at the top of the Shard as the finalists of the Diageo World Class Bartender of the Year 2017 gathered for an evening of food and drinks to relax before their final showdown.
Whiskey has the ability to open up conversation like no other drink. I’m not just talking about effects pertaining to its alcohol content which ranges from the robust to the stupendous. No, I’m referring to the complexities of the drink itself, which are as disparate as they are similar igniting debate and discussion; the heart of any good evening.
Alfa Romeo is a name synonymous with an emotionally engaging drive, in fact ask any Alfa Romeo owner and they will tell you that there is something special about an Alfa, even if they can’t put their finger on it. I myself am a multiple Alfa Romeo owner, with the Pininfarina designed Alfa Romeo GTV being my first, coaxing me into the world of Alfa Romeo with its stunning looks – a nod to a Ferrari heritage – proving too good to ignore.
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".
