Going camping for the long Memorial Day Weekend is one of my favorite ways to ring in the summer season. It provides the perfect opportunity to get out of town, disconnect, and spend a few long days relaxing in nature. Unfortunately, a lot of other people have the same idea. If you’re a real forward-thinker, you’re one of the smart ones and likely booked your campsite six months ago.
Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where we get to honor our moms for everything they’ve done for us. While everyone has their own way of spoiling their moms on their special day, you can’t go wrong with a decadent brunch. Your mom will love having a meal out, spending time with you, and not having to cook or clean up for once. So why not treat your mom to a delicious meal you’ll both enjoy? Here are the six best places to bring all the special moms in your life for brunch on Mother’s Day.
When you live in the Bay Area, the Central Valley often gets overlooked as a destination getaway. I hardly ever venture out this way, unless coming back the long way from Sacramento, which is really a shame because the Lodi region is home to some pretty fantastic wines. Just north of Stockton, Lodi is only about an hour and a half long drive away from San Jose and makes for an easily doable day trip.
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".
