19 JUN 2017: It’s always a pleasure when someone you knew years ago surfaces in a new and exciting position. So, being (re)introduced to Avalon Waterways’ new managing director Terri Burke recently was a delightful surprise. Burke began as a travel agent in the US, going on to work with Holland America and Norwegian and was named to her current position about six months ago. Retiring managing director Patrick Clark is now chairman.
19 MAY 2017: The good news is that no US ban on laptops has been imposed on European flights. The bad news is that there is no actual decision – yet - it’s just been postponed. A four-hour meeting Wednesday between EU and US officials to discuss the possibility that the US will extend a ban on laptops in aircraft cabins to European airports ended without a conclusion. But don’t start relaxing travellers, a follow-up meeting is set for next week in Washington.
09 MAY 2017: Tourism Australia’s Robert Keddy is a happy man and with good reason. Canadian visitation downunder is on the rise, topping 154,000 arrivals for a spurt of over 7.2 percent in the past 12 months. Keddie credits the Canadian dollar which is strong against its Australian counterpart and increased lift for the robust showing, and a Tourism Australia trade and media event in Toronto last week coincided with Air Canada’s announcement of a new non-stop flight from Vancouver to Melbourne.
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".
