Oh, baby it’s cold outside! That means it’s time to think about warm beverages that can warm the tummy and the soul. Sip the delicious hot cocoa at Blue Tulip while you watch chocolates being made by the team of experts lead by chocolatier and owner Diane Holland. Don’t even try and resist the truffles, tulips, barks and swirls. Be sure to ask about the new Butter Crunch. Creamy, crunchy, buttery English toffee dipped in chocolate and rolled in roasted almonds!
As soon as the weather begins to cool in the northeast many families start dreaming of sun and sand. This year, in the wake of multiple hurricanes, some destinations can’t be considered. Not so for Captiva Island, an island in southwest Florida, located near Fort Myers just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and often associated with the neighboring Sanibel Island. Hurricane Irma did pass by, but the area has been restored and is ready for visitors.
A child’s birthday is a special day and as parents we go out of our way to make the day extra-special. Be careful not to overdo the festivities or a perfectly nice event can turn into a major meltdown. Any party pro will tell you the rule is one more than the age of the child. That means four children can attend your 3-year-old’s birthday bash. Yet, most parents ignore this. Still, it is best to keep the crowd small. This allows for proper supervision, less commotion and a better all-round experience.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
