While there is not much room for a community garden in midtown, one the best hotels in NYC has decided create a different type of garden on its rooftop. The New York Hilton Midtown has just checked in a buzzing 450,000 guests to it’s fifth floor rooftop. These guests won’t take up tons of room, and they will be working 24 hours a day. Oh, did we mention that these guests are honey bees?
Recently I discovered a new favorite activity; furniture shopping. Since graduating college in May, I’ve started to build a life for myself in Kansas City and realized I have complete freedom on how I want to decorate my future apartment. So I am embracing this new hobby and can’t wait to start decorating in cheap bitch style. Every month I make the 20 minute drive from my house in the KC ‘burbs to the West Bottoms district close to downtown for their First Friday’s extravaganza.
There are a number of constants in any New Yorker's life. Crazy trains, some pretty spectacular music venues and the ability to score a “decent” slice of pizza at all hours of the day are a few of them. And now we have another option that is a game-changer for pizza aficionados in the city: a two-foot-long slice.
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".
