For at least a year, I've been on a quest for the perfect tea pot. My efforts, until recently, left me feeling like a medieval knight searching for a mystical grail. And then I had my Goldilocks moment. I finally found the perfect tea pot. Before I reveal my find, however, let's back up a minute and take a look at what makes for a perfect tea pot. When I started my search, the truth is, I didn't know â€” at least not exactly. I knew I wanted something big enough to serve two or more people.
Vacation Rental: Lokal Hotel, Philadelphia, PA Sleeps: There are six apartment-style rooms, 3 one-bedrooms and 3 two-bedrooms Price: Rates start at $195 Why We Wanna Cook Here: We're definitely feeling the bold blue look here. In the great debate of hotels vs. vacation rentals, I admit that I am torn. And not because I don't have strong opinions — I do! I love both so much! Don't make me pick just one! I truly believe that a good hotel is one life's luxuries worth splurging on.
There are many things I prefer to do solo: grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning. It's faster and more efficient, yes, but it also offers a sort of meditative break from my regular job, which involves sitting at a desk all day long. One might argue there is a good reason I'm single! But there are limitations to my single status. From recipes (almost always designed to serve four to six) to loaves of bread (why are they so big?
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".
