I went out for dinner a few weeks ago. Once, that wouldn’t have merited a mention, but since moving out of London to live in Shropshire six months ago, I don’t get out much. In fact, it was only my fourth night out since the move. As it was, I sat at a table of 12 Londoners on a weekend jolly, and found myself struck mute as, around me, people discussed everything from the general election to the Hockney exhibition at Tate Britain (I had to look it up later).
Known as the other city that never sleeps, Tel Aviv boasts some of the best nightlife in the Med, with a 24-hour culture of bars and clubs to keep you happy whatever your wont. Kuli Alma has a terrace and live music and The Block and Sputnik blast techno until dawn. There’s plenty to do during daylight hours as well.
When, like me, you have a very stylish mother, people often ask, "How come … you … aren't?" It's understandable. My mother worked for many years as fashion director and latterly deputy editor at British Vogue, before going on to help launch the iconic fashion magazine in countries from Brazil to India. And she regularly styled fashion shoots with the world's most beautiful women, including Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford, and was also personal style adviser to Diana, Princess of Wales.
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".
