WestJet’s winter seat sale is on, and, rest assured, it’s not a scam. Scammers have recently used the Canadian airline’s name in fraudulent free ticket offers on the Internet, but WestJet’s current Internet sale — which ends Thursday night — is the real deal. WestJet's website says the airline is offering 1 million seats on its flights for a total price of $140 Canadian (about $113 U.S.).
Having covered aviation safety for decades, I was taken aback when President Trump seemingly took credit this week for zero fatal accidents of commercial airline flights last year. No fatal accidents by big U.S. airlines is a common occurrence that has frequently happened in years prior to the Trump Administration. The last fatal accident occurred in February 2009, and there were none in 2008, 2007, 2002 and 1998, according to National Transportation Safety Board statistics.
Ronnie Spector and Christmas music may fit together as well as Miles Davis and jazz or Hank Williams and country music. Spector performed her first Christmas show 31 years ago in New York City and is still going strong this holiday season. She has already performed five Christmas shows in four states in the past 11 days and has four more upcoming in Texas, New York, and Connecticut. “I first fell in love with Santa when I was little girl,” Spector tells me.
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".
