The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota (just outside Minneapolis) is seriously so much fun. I’ve been there twice now and didn’t have enough time to explore all that is the Mall of America either time. There’s just too much stuff to do there. Clearly I must go back a third time. My kids and I went to the Mall of America in July. It was the very last stop on our three-week road trip before we flew home from Minneapolis.
Costa Rica has a lot to offer active families, from volcanoes and ziplines to hanging bridges and white-faced monkeys. Even better, there are a number of direct flights into San Jose and Liberia, making it easy to begin an adventure in Costa Rica, regardless of which part of the country you’re eager to visit.
When you live in Northern Virginia, you go to North Carolinaâ€™s Outer Banks for a week at the beach during the summer. Itâ€™s what you do. So it came as a surprise when I realized it had been 25 years since Iâ€™d been to the Outer Banks. Clearly it was time to make a trip back to the Outer Banks, and to check out more than Duck, a beach rental town in the northern section of the Outer Banks.
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".
