Ladies, picture yourselves in a cozy Ecuadorian highland hacienda surrounded by horses, rolling hills, and volcanoes (and lots of empanadas and wine). Test your physical strength through outdoor activities such as horseback riding, biking, hiking, ropes course, and yoga, and then come inside and warm up with a hot drink by the fire as we discuss life together. I’m excited to announce this next group adventure, which will be taking place February 1-5, 2018.
When I arrived at the group hotel for my 7-day kayak camping and whale watching trip in Baja, the last thing on my mind was that I might actually relax and enjoy the week ahead. I had just moved out of my apartment right there in Loreto, Baja California Sur, where the trip was starting. I had been there for the past two months, and I was only five blocks away from my house, yet I was now officially back in transition.
A workshop in building the one net that will always be there to catch you. We’ve all heard the saying, “Leap and the net will appear.” While this encourages us to be brave and take risks, it also suggests that something or someone else will magically catch us when we do. Excuse me as I call its bluff. In 2015, I chose to take a leap and change my life. I had a husband, an apartment, and even a dog, in a place I called home. My leap catapulted me straight into a nomadic life as a solo female traveler.
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".
