Many of you know that I’ve been to Los Angeles for as many years as I’ve lived, plus a few additional times. I lived there for six years, ten if you count my college time at Pomona (still part of the LA metro area). But in all that time I can count the times I’ve been to San Diego, just a little over two hours south and far more scenic, on one hand, plus one more. That includes once as a grade-school kid, twice when I was college, ten years ago with the RAS and the girls, and just last week.
When I was in grade school, during one of our many trips to San Francisco, I remember seeing a tiered half-pyramid hotel on the Embarcadero.Â It looked like something from ancient Egypt but with a completely modern concrete faĂ§ade.Â When we went inside, the highest indoor space I had ever seen dazzled me.Â There was a metal sculpture fountain with changing colored lights, corridors of rooms high above and an open restaurant and bar.Â All of it was so novel and cool, I thought that all...
Cheyenne Mountain Resort is a great reason to defy these casual Colorado travel observations I’ve made in the past decade:When people travel to our fair state, roughly 60% or so come into Denver. About half of them stick around the area. The other half mostly head to the mountains for skiing or camping or whatever adventure the tourism board has enticed them to be a part of.
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".
