In the outermost regions of the British Isles, St. Kilda has bore witness to the migration of humans and birds for at least the past 2,000 years. Abandoned nearly 100 years ago, the deserted island is still open to visitors who want to experience its remote beauty. St. Kilda is made up of the islands of Hirta, Dun, Soay and Boreray, all formed by a volcanic eruption 52-65 million years ago off the coast of Scotland.
Tourism to the U.K. has soared in 2017, thanks in part to the falling value of the pound compared to the euro and the dollar. The country saw a 20 percent jump in the period between April and June, corresponding to a record 10.75 million visitors, The Independent reported. It was the strongest quarter for tourism since record keeping began in 1980.
Airlines are bracing for a busy weekend of Labor Day travel, and passengers should get ready, too. An estimated 16.1 million passengers are expected to take to the skies from Wednesday, August 30 to Tuesday September 5, according to trade group Airlines for America. This year's expected number of travelers is up from 15.4 million passengers last year. Anyone planning to spend their Labor Day weekend camping, on the beach, or otherwise traveling isn't completely out of luck, however.
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".
