In New York City, every inch matters. Sub Zero refrigerators come in slightly smaller versions to fit into apartment elevators and through brownstone doors. Bikes fold up. A longer car canâ€™t be parked as easily on the street, or requires an extra large parking spot in a garage, with an extra monthly charge. So the slightly downsized Lexus NX 300 is ideal when driving in NYC. For the Lexus NX 300h, less is more. This luxury crossover is a couple of inches smaller than its bigger sibling, the RX.
Going out to brunch can be a way to introduce your kids to restaurants. Instead of dinner, where you get the hairy eyeball from strangers, you can eat at a less stressful time. The kids arenâ€™t exhausted from a long day, and the other diners arenâ€™t expecting culinary masterpieces. But a kid friendly restaurantsÂ that both embraces children AND offers some of the best brunch food around? That is rare indeed. And to find it in Brooklyn makes it even more appealing.
On a recent trip to Chicago, Illinois, my husband and I hit the ground running. We arrived on a Saturday morning, took a quick trip into the loop on the El and checked into theÂ Kimpton Hotel Allegro. We had lunch reservations at a vegetarian restaurant and grabbed a couple of the free bikes for the short ride to lunch. All Kimpton hotels provide free bikes, but some have only two. The Hotel Allegro had about a dozen. The hotel also has a hydration station, with fruit-infused water, in the lobby.
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".
