After eight days impersonating a waiter, I was fired, but luckily they didn't press charges. This was in Maine, over at Big Corporate. Mind, I got no ax to grind and no problem with anybody that works for Big Corporate; some lovely folks there. People just trying to make turns, or make a living, or make a truck payment, or make insurance premiums: Everyone's gotta eat. But Big Corporate has its problems. Draconian controls imposed by distant owners crush morale.
These images are not safe for work. Which is why they’re not at work. They’re at a bar. PHOTO: Clare MenzelFor more than 30 years, images of beefcakes and babes have adorned the walls of both bathrooms at the Bulldog, a classic Whitefish downtown watering hole. There are two stalls in the women's room; one is labeled with a graphic content warning, alerting patrons about the most salacious photos of them all, the collection of fully nude male figures on the backside of the stall door.

The industrial-strength blasting of snow on the Sierra was relentless for more than a month. My back ached from shoveling and I hadn't skied in a week because it had been snowing too much. With winds over 150 mph at the summit and whiteout conditions, Mammoth Mountain was on a well-earned weather hold.
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".
