Bright lights and the hustle and bustle of urban life typically define Manhattan, but a new Strongbow initiative is bringing a healthy dose of nature to the concrete jungle through the end of the year. As part of its Nature Remix campaign, which highlights the brand’s assortment of natural cider flavors, Strongbow is helping city dwellers connect with nature through a fully functional, floating orchard on the Hudson River. How do you like them apples?
Whoa. It’s the word the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) frequently uses to describe CES. For the last 50 years, the show has propelled the evolution of technology by fostering innovation and collaboration among some of the tech industry’s brightest minds. And after spending two days in Las Vegas racing around the world’s largest trade show (held this year Jan. 5-8), we’d have to concur with the CTA’s characterization of the event.
When you think of the key elements that contribute to an effective event, chances are furniture isn’t top of mind. But as younger generations make up a larger portion of attendee bases and their networking opportunities continue to be a top request, and the line between business and pleasure continues to blur, event marketers are placing greater importance on the role that furnishings play in the overall success of their events. Want to increase attendee dwell time?
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".
