So, you’ve landed at LAX, ready to hit the beach for some of Southern California’s famous sun and fun, but there’s one problem — which beach is the perfect one for you? We’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing, so check out our choices here, then jump into your rental car (preferably a convertible, of course) and hit the Pacific Coast Highway to find your personal paradise, California style.
If you’ve never taken the admittedly long trip from New York to Australia, we’re here to tell you about what you’ve been missing. For the Land Down Under is truly a magical place, where the friendly locals speak English, the landscapes are breathtaking, and there’s always a spot to settle in for a sip of wine, a pint of beer and a locally sourced bite to eat.
It is unfortunate public knowledge that California's Napa and Sonoma valleys burst into flames in October 2017, striking fear into the hearts of oenophiles the world over. Those two world-famous wine valleys are the gems of American viticulture, the place where some of the country's top wines are born and nurtured to greatness. The good news is, despite much damage in certain areas, Napa and Sonoma are alive and well and waiting for wine (and food) lovers to return.
I am just old enough to distinctly remember the #MLKJr "I Have a Dream" speech, but his assassination is seared in my memory. To everything he stood for, I stand up too, today and every day. #MLKDayhttps://t.co/vWB1mYgBkG
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".
