Whether you are escaping the cold, a spa aficionado, a baseball or aviation fan, a foodie, or possess a certain goat fixation – more on that later – exploring the greater Phoenix area is a good choice for a pleasant get away. Sun adoration is required since in this part of Arizona there are on average 325 days of annual sunshine. From October to May, average temperature highs run comfortably from 65 degrees to 92 and average lows run 36 to 57 degrees.
Road warriors and serious vagabonds all know that good luggage can make travel a breeze and bad luggage is usually a one-way ticket to Purgatory. Though I normally clock in at least 100,000 miles a year, I haven’t checked in a bag in years. And as I intend to keep it that way, I am always on the lookout for good carry-on spinner bags and other gadgets to make the travel experience as carefree as possible.
The Hawaiian island of Oahu has no shortage of great hotels. However, Oahu’s newest and most sparkling diamond is certainly the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina. To add to its glorious location on the island’s peaceful west side, it has some of the planet’s finest sunsets that money cannot buy.
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".
