Ritz-Carlton Westchester offers pampered luxury for an overnight, a staycation or an extended stay. We had lived in the same house in Chappaqua, New York for more than 23 years. Like other empty nesters in similar circumstances, of course, we had a hard time saying goodbye. In fact, it felt gut-wrenching to leave the community where we were rooted and to sell the dwelling where we raised our son. But it was time—time to snag the wonderful memories and leave leaky faucets behind.
Are there ways to avoid catching a cold next time you fly? For starters, watch what you touch, breathe and drink. Tis the season. Everyone around you is coughing and sneezing â€” and your holiday plans include air travel. Although I’m generally not a germophobe, sitting in a too-close for-comfort confined space for hours always makes me nervous about catching a cold that could spoil my vacation. If you’re worried about getting sick on your next flight, there’s cause for concern.
Honestly, we had no time to test them all but Maison Dandoy is rumored to serve the best waffles in Brussels—perhaps, in Belgium. Turn any street corner in Belgium and you’re likely to be tempted by the sweet scent of freshly-baked waffles. While Americans tend to eat these delicacies for breakfast or as an indulgent dessert, Belgians (perhaps, because they tend to burn so much energy bicycling and walking) are just as likely to consume the calorific treats as a quick “pick-me-up” between meals.
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".
